When Negligent Truck Drivers Hurt Other Truckers in New Mexico Trucking Accidents: Common Accidents in Ontario, Upland, and Rancho Cucamonga

Large commercial trucks such as big rigs, 18 wheelers, tankers, tandem trailers, flatbeds, and other large trucks can cause serious injury and damage to occupants of smaller passenger vehicles.  But it is commonly overlooked that large commercial trucks can also cause very serious injuries and even more damage to the drivers of other large commercial vehicles.  Even though most truck drivers sit high up in a cabin which is well-protected, on the high speed interstates there can be catastrophic damages in a truck versus truck collision.

Some common interstates producing serious New Mexico trucking accidents involving other trucks are I-40 and I-10.  Both of interstates lead through New Mexico and Arizona to what may be the largest hub in the southwest United States for trucking companies and truck drivers.  That is after combining with I-15, these interstates lead to Ontario, California.  This area includes Upland, California and Rancho Cucamonga, California.  Many truck drivers consider this their home base in the southwest United States.
