Truck Accidents, Unsecured Loads, & Overloaded Trailers
An overloaded truck takes longer to stop and is harder to control than one that is carrying a legal load. Overloaded trucks can jackknife or roll over in a sudden traffic maneuver, leading to deadly accidents that can affect vehicles in several lanes of traffic.
Items on a trailer that have not been properly secured can fly off when the truck is traveling at high speed, becoming dangerous missiles that can strike other vehicles. Truck drivers may not even be aware that something has fallen off their trailer and continue driving. In some cases, witnesses come forward to identify the truck that dropped the cargo or equipment that caused an accident or struck a pedestrian.
