What Causes Truck and Bus Accidents?

Common causes of truck and bus accidents include: 

  • Speeding or traveling too fast for conditions: The faster a vehicle travels, the more time and distance are needed to stop, and the greater the force of a collision. Speeding can cause a driver to lose control of a truck or bus.
  • Distracted driving: Long trips can become tedious for truckers and bus drivers. They may be tempted to text, talk on the phone, or engage in some other form of distracted driving.
  • Fatigued driving: Commercial drivers who spend long hours on the road can become fatigued, particularly when they don’t get enough sleep. Fatigue is similar to alcohol in the driving impairment it causes, according to the CDC
  • Driving under the influence of drugs: In the latest truck and bus accident statistics, FMCSA reports that, of the almost 5,000 truck drivers involved in fatal crashes, 41% were tested for drugs and nearly 300 tested positive.

Massive semi-trucks and buses are more difficult to maneuver and control than much smaller passenger vehicles. It requires a high level of skill and the undivided attention of the driver to safely operate big rigs and buses. Different factors can contribute to truck and bus accidents, including road construction and weather conditions, but in most cases, some type of driver error is involved.
