Tanker Crashes in New Jersey

Sharing the road with a large tanker truck or 18-wheeler can cause you to overcome with anxiety. This is because we all know just how devastating these types of massive vehicles can be in the event of a crash. There are many large trucks that travel through New Jersey in a given year, with more than 500,000 trucking accidents taking place on American roads each year. These collisions result in over 5,000 deaths and many more injuries. When fully loaded, a big rig can weigh upwards from 70,000 pounds, and when traveling at highway speeds, this can cause a completely devastating crash. Those traveling in smaller passenger cars are at greater risk of suffering serious injuries. Unfortunately, most trucking accidents involve personal vehicles.
