Truck accidents: $250,000 settlement in fire truck crash

A crash between a motorcycle and a fire truck has cost one California city $250,000. A woman agreed to the settlement with the city of Palo Alto after losing control of her bike due to a large fire truck that was sitting in the middle of the road during a non-emergency situation. Truck accidents such as this often cause significant property damage and serious bodily harm to victims.

Truck accidents: 1 dead, 9 injured in massive california crash

A recent crash between two big rigs has left one man dead and nine people injured. In one of the worst truck accidents to happen in California recently, freeway lanes were closed for hours as crews worked to clean up the debris left at the scene. The wreckage was said to have been charred and smoking for some time.

Man killed in one of California's fatal trucking accidents

A 68-year-old man was killed in a crash which involved four other vehicles on a recent Friday afternoon. According to the California Highway Patrol, the man was operating a pickup truck that was involved in the wreck.

FMCSA identifies events that result in commercial truck accidents

The study reviewed drugs with a gross weight of 10,000 pounds or more. The goal of the study was to identify the factors that lead to commercial truck accidents. Commercial trucks are responsible for a disproportionate number of fatalities and serious injuries on the road. This study identified the critical events that lead to those accidents.

A review of no-zones in large trucks

Tractor-trailer or semi-trucks are necessary and deadly machines on the highways. They compose a very small slice of overall traffic but account for a large number of fatalities. For example, in 2014 there were 3,660 deaths that were related or caused by semi-trucks. A number of these fatalities are due to passenger vehicles entering into semi-truck no-zones. This post will go over the dangers of no-zones and how you can stay safe on the road.

Otto brings self-driving trucks one step closer to reality

Otto, a little-known outfit working to bring self-driven trucks to market, notched a significant accomplishment ? its experimental truck successfully traveled 120 highway miles without a human operator in the cab. Self-driven car headlines have been dominated by the likes of Google, Uber and Tesla. However, none of those companies have been able to field a car that is permitted to operate without a human driver. This post will go over the trucks development and what it may mean to you.

Who regulates trucking safety in California?

California has one of the highest numbers of trucks present on its highways throughout the entire country. In total, trucks travel around 30 million miles every day on California roads and freeways. The California government has delegated the California Highway Patrol the duty to regulate all of that trucking activity. To meet that goal, the CHP has devised a program that combines education, enforcement and partnerships with industry to improve safety and save lives.

Top causes behind large truck crashes

Large semi-trucks cause a disproportionate number of traffic fatalities relative to their number on the road. A study was conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to study the causes of semi and large truck crashes. This study examined 120,000 serious truck crashes. It studied only large trucks with a gross weight over 10,000 pounds. This post will review those results.

Some statistics on truck accidents

Delivery trucks, shipping trucks and heavy-duty construction trucks remain an integral part of American commerce and transportation. But while trucks are a daily necessity, they also cause a huge number of fatalities and injuries on the road. Trucks are larger than passenger vehicles, with some semi-trucks reaching 20 to 30 times the weight of the average car. This makes them a deadly but necessary part of the road.

Have you or someone you love been involved in a truck accident?

We see them daily on our nation's highways and byways, quietly rolling along as they perform their trade. Seldom do we stop and give thought to the devastating results of being involved in a collision with one of these giants. However, every year thousands of Americans are the victims of commercial truck-related accidents. Weighing as much as 40 tons, the sheer size of semi-trucks can cause catastrophic damage and injuries when involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle.
