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.

Causes of Trucking Accidents Involving Other Trucks

Other truck drivers can be serious injured in a trucking accident when another negligent truck driver causes an accident.  This is because large commercial trucks can be difficult to maneuver when it comes to making a split-second decision to avoid a collision.  Sometimes it is just impossible to avoid the collision.

Some common causes of trucking accidents involving other trucks and hurting truck drivers includes the following:

  • Excessive speed;
  • Improper lane change;
  • Failing to marge onto the interstate or highway properly;
  • Distracted driving on cellphone;
  • Drunk driving;
  • Drugged driving;
  • Following too closely;
  • Braking too hard;
  • Jackknifing;
  • Failure to provide enough turning room;
  • Tire blowout;
  • Brake failure;
