These statistics are even more surprising when you realize that large trucks account for a small percentage of total vehicles on the road. There are many causes for the large number of trucking accidents. The commercial truck industry demands fast delivery of their goods, often forcing their drivers to push forward despite lack of sleep and poor weather conditions. Speeding and driver fatigue are two major contributing factors to truck accidents in and around the Cincinnati area. Improper truck maintenance is also a factor in brake failures and tire blow-outs. In an effort to transport more cargo, the trucks are often overloaded or their cargo improperly secured, resulting in dangerous operations.
