Kansas City Metro Truck Crashes

There have been, this summer, several fiery truck crashes around the metro area. There can be many causes of truck crashes, but one that is often overlooked is the failure of other drivers to recognize that trucks behave differently, under various driving conditions, then do smaller vehicles.

A truck takes a lot longer to slow down than a small car. Consequently, many accidents could be avoided if this fact was realized and acted upon by all drivers. Pictures and videos of some of the most recent trucking accidents in the Kansas City Metro appear to indicate they occurred in construction zones. Construction zones present a number of problems beyond the danger of injuring or killing a highway worker. For instance, the right away can be hard to determine in a construction zone. Also, there may be no safe area to pull over in a construction zone. Further, an accident that occurs in a construction zone, may create a situation where additional vehicles become involved in the accident, because those vehicles have nowhere to go except forward. That is why it is important to keep a careful look out and to make sure that you leave sufficient distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to allow for emergency stops.
