What Can Cause A Connecticut Truck Accident?
Summer travel, especially as our state begins to open up in this time of COVID-19, may look a little different. The Connecticut State Police have reported more fatalities despite fewer vehicles on the roadways. Large commercial trucks, however, have and will always be on our roadways.
Truckers are operating vehicles that are so much heavier than passenger vehicles. Because of this, they bear a greater responsibility to keep our roads safe.
Common causes of Connecticut truck accidents include:
- Tire blowouts
- Unsafe lane changes
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while impaired
- Improperly secured cargo
- Failure to abide by the rules of the road
