Dangerous cargo has been linked to many vehicle wrecks involving 18-wheelers and commercial trucks on Houston highways. Large trucks already pose a threat to other motorists in the event of a collision due to their size in comparison to passenger vehicles. When hazardous cargo is added to the mix; however, the risks are raised significantly if an accident occurs.
Dangerous cargo can include a number of things that are transported by an 18-wheeler or commercial truck. Explosions or fires involving propane tanks, malfunctions with concrete mixing transport trucks, and unstable truck loads from which items fall onto the road and place drivers in harm’s way are just a few examples of the types of accidents that have occurred on the nation’s roads that have been linked to dangerous cargo.
It can be difficult to get out of harm’s way when faced with hazards on the road. Especially in cases where a truck load suddenly becomes unstable, or an explosion happens on a commercial vehicle that is transporting items or chemicals, other drivers are not given enough warning to protect themselves from the serious accidents that often result.
