Texas Truck Accident Causes
Causes of Semi-truck Crashes in Corpus Christi and the rest of Texas
Truck accidents can happen for many reasons. While semi trucks are, by their nature, more dangerous than cars and passenger vehicles, most truck drivers are safe drivers who understand the risks on the road. Unfortunately, even the smallest distraction or lapse in judgment can cause an accident.
