How Broken Bones Happen

Broken bones in an 18 wheeler wreck in New Mexico occur in many different ways. Generally, any type of collision with a big rig can cause broken bones. Most causes of broken bones include the shock or force of impact. The force of an impact with these massive trucks can break bones alone, especially in the back or neck.
