Fatal car crashes are not in short supply; in fact, 2014 statistics revealed that a traffic crash was reported every 240 seconds in Alabama. Many automobile accidents involve semi-trailer trucks. Just last month a Birmingham woman died in a crash after colliding with a tractor trailer. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is an organization within the federal government whose primary mission is to prevent motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration publishes statistics on these crashes. The number of fatal crashes involving large trucks colliding with vehicles in transport was 2,574. Over five percent of victims of the crashes involving large trucks were under the age of twenty-five. With such a high number of crashes, it is imperative to be knowledgeable about remedies if involved in a large truck crash.
