A closer look at South Carolina truck accident causes
Truck accidents can happen fast on highways and residential streets throughout Beaufort County. A fatigued trucker using the Trask Parkway to deliver cargo to Beaufort could fall asleep at the wheel and veer in and out of traffic lanes moments before a crash. A trucker rushing to meet delivery times on I-95 near Bluffton might jackknife and cause a potentially deadly rollover crash. Common causes of truck accidents in South Carolina include the following:
- Distracted drivers
- Fatigued drivers
- Impaired drivers
- Reckless driving
Due to the size, weight and vehicles traveled by a typical semi-truck, it's imperative for truck companies to properly maintain trucks and keep detailed records about a truck's maintenance history. A fully loaded, 18-wheeled truck can weigh up to 80 tons. Even minor amounts of wear and tear can prove to have disastrous consequences in a truck crash. Other common causes of truck accidents include:
- Improper maintenance
- Faulty brakes
- Tire blowouts
- Overloaded trucks
