Fatal Truck Accidents in California
On average, more than 110 fatal truck accidents take place annually in the state of California. In many cases, these truck accidents are caused by drivers who act negligently while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are preventable. One of the leading causes of truck accidents is driver fatigue. Truck drivers often work long hours, and they may not get enough sleep. This can lead to them getting behind the wheel when they’re tired, which increases the risk of an accident.
Another cause of truck accidents is speeding. Truck drivers may speed to try to make up for lost time or to reach their destination more quickly. But speeding is dangerous, and it can lead to serious accidents.
Other causes of truck accidents include impaired driving, distracted driving, and aggressive driving. These are all preventable behaviors, but they can still result in serious accidents.
