A truck driver from Georgia is at the center of a tragic accident that occurred over the weekend and resulted in numerous injuries and a fatality. The crash has grabbed the national spotlight, as well-known comedian Tracy Morgan was one of the victims injured in the accident.
Commercial-sized vehicles can be among the most dangerous vehicles on the road because of their size, weight and power. They can pose an enormous threat to other motorists if they are involved in a crash because even minor collisions can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries for the victims. That is why it is crucial that buses and trucks are operated safely and that drivers and company owners stay in compliance with state and federal regulations.
