Tractor Trailer/ Semi Accident
The backbone of America’s commercial shipping industry is the semi-truck, last year the eighteen-wheeled behemoths delivered nearly 70% of all freight in the United States. Unfortunately, in 2008 semi accidents or tractor trailer accidents accounted for nearly three percent of all accidents in Arizona. In March, 2010 a commercial bus overturned on the I-10 freeway and killed six (6) people. Use caution when driving around or near semi-trucks due to their size there are “no-drive zones” or blind spots where the driver cannot see other motorists. To avoid a tractor trailer accident make sure and give these vehicles plenty of room on the road.
