Truck crashes are the cause of thousands of deaths across the United States. Unfortunately, here in Texas, we see a significant number of families torn apart as a result of these fatal accidents. In Texas, fatal truck crashes take the lives of hundreds of people annually. In many cases, truck accidents are entirely preventable. Many of these accidents take place at busy intersections in our state due to driver error.
Failing to yield is one of the most common reasons for truck accidents at intersections, along with running red lights and passing stop signs. All of these behaviors are dangerous and can lead to serious accidents, but failing to yield is particularly dangerous because it often results in a head-on collision. Head-on collisions are some of the most severe types of accidents and can often be fatal.
