A truck accident is one of the most devastating road accidents that can occur, primarily because of the fact that trucks are huge as compared to other vehicles on the roads. It is hard to deny the fact that when a huge object strikes a small one, major damage can occur. In the case of an accident involving a large semi truck and a small automobile, passengers of the small vehicle will almost definitely suffer the most severe physical injuries. In contrast, the truck driver and any passenger will have greater chances of survival.
