SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA COMMERCIAL TRUCK ACCIDENT: In a California commercial truck accident involving a passenger vehicle, what are some common characteristics?

 

According to some recent statistics, these accidents are caused by a combination of a truck's characteristics and performance capabilities (including limits associated with acceleration, braking, and visibility) and car drivers' ignorance as to those characteristics.  In addition, usually the size and weight of a commercial vehicle is much greater than a passenger car; and as a result, due to natural physics, severe accidents are the common result.
