Fatal Semi-Truck Crashes in Mississippi
Many Mississippi drivers are wary of driving behind large trucks because they know how much damage these vehicles can cause in the event of a collision. Commercial vehicles transport the majority of freight in the United States. Because of their smaller size, passengers in smaller cars are at a higher risk. In the United States, approximately 500,000 semi-truck collisions are reported each year, resulting in thousands of fatalities.
