Truck accidents can be devastating, as the force generated by a commercial vehicle, especially if it is hauling heavy weight, can lead to violent collisions.
This is doubly true when accidents involve tractor-trailers and other large vehicles. Often, these collisions result in death and catastrophic injuries, like broken bones, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries.

Truck accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including driver error, lack of truck maintenance, poorly loaded cargo, defective auto parts, improper weight, speeding and/or poor weather. In many cases, because of their devastation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigates truck accidents.
Sadly, on December 2, two people were killed on westbound Interstate 24 north of downtown Nashville when a tractor-trailer heading eastbound crossed a median and hit a FedEx truck. Both trucks ended up catching on fire.
According to WSMV-TV, it is unclear why the tractor-trailer crossed the median. The station reported that the Tennessee Department of Transportation is investigating the crash.
