Truck Accidents in Texas
Texas has been reported to have the most semi-truck fatality accidents in the nation. In 2016, 484 people were killed in truck accidents. Whenever truck accidents occur at night, the leading causes are usually drivers driving while they’re fatigued, or when the truck is malfunctioning. Whenever a truck loses control, it’s usually due to tires not having enough air.
