Truck accidents have many causes, but some of the most common include distractions, exhaustion and speeding. Drivers may rush to get to their destinations to receive bonuses for delivery times or may skip breaks to meet tight deadlines. When they don't get the rest they need or are in a hurry, drivers are more likely to cause serious collisions.
When there are multiple accidents in the same area, there has to be a question about what is causing them. For example, Walton County, Georgia, has had several serious collisions occur in nearly the same location. Two involved local fire trucks. A woman living near the crash site said there had been around a half-dozen crashes in the last few months, and the two trucks that were involved in the latest were among the newest victims.
When packages need to be delivered, FedEx and other services begin to travel with them in their commercial vehicles. Unfortunately, if they travel too closely together, there is a high risk of a crash.
