Fatal Florida truck accident may be drug-related

Florida's traffic accident record demands that drivers remain alert and aware to maintain safety. The state has seen more than 250,000 collisions so far in 2017, with 1,783 people losing their lives after them. This is a higher count than the same period of 2016.

Semi rollover crashes in Florida are a significant danger

Trucks are the lifeblood of Florida's trade and shipping, and thousands of trucks line the state's highways and roads every day. Drivers can make mistakes or cause hazards on the road, and a recent pair of rollover crashes call attention to a potentially dangerous situation for surrounding vehicles.

Do semi drivers cause most truck accidents?

Why do cargo tank trucks rollover?

Truck accident stats show a disconcerting trend

Semi-trucks and large trucks pose very serious risks to people out on the road. They are powerful, unwieldy vehicles that can tip over, fail to brake on time and generally do tremendous damage when they are involved in an accident. This is to say nothing of the drivers of these vehicles, who can often become distracted or fatigued by their lack of sleep, their extensive workload or just being lost in thought while on the road.

Truck accident blocks I-95, minor injuries reported

A motor vehicle accident in Brevard County, Florida late last week blocked Interstate 95 for a significant amount of time after a tractor trailer and a truck hauling construction equipment became entangled in the wreck. It is unclear at this time what caused the crash, but the police are looking into it. The crash forced multiple lanes to be closed for two hours, backing up traffic for miles.
