Deadly Truck Accidents in Ohio
Large commercial vehicles are massive, and at highway speeds, can require nearly thirty times greater a distance to come to a complete stop than a typical passenger car. These vehicles are capable of inflicting life-changing injuries in the event of a crash. Statistics show that more than 5,000 passenger vehicle occupants are killed in semi-truck collisions across the United States each year. The vast majority of deadly trucking accidents involve the passengers of smaller cars.
