Fatal Trucking Accidents in Mississippi
Many Mississippi drivers are wary of following large trucks because they know how much damage these vehicles can cause if they collide. The majority of freight in the United States is transported by commercial vehicles. Passengers in smaller cars are at a higher risk due to their smaller size. Each year, approximately 500,000 semi-truck collisions are reported in the United States, resulting in thousands of deaths.
