Missouri’s 2010 Traffic Safety Compendium concluded that fatal commercial vehicle accidents are on the rise in that state, with 4.3% more in 2010 than in 2009. Missouri jackknife truck accidents are among the most severe type of traffic collisions. Jackknifing occurs when the trailer of an articulated vehicle folds against the truck’s cab at a sharp angle, swinging with great force into nearby lanes of traffic and obliterating anything in its path. The large size and weight of a tractor-trailer mean that any cars involved in a jackknife truck accident in Missouri are likely to be destroyed, and the people in them seriously injured or killed. Missouri jackknife truck accidents result from largely preventable circumstances including ill-maintained brakes, poor loaded techniques and improper braking. Road conditions such as icy or slippery roads can also contribute to the causation of a Missouri jackknife truck accident.
Commercial trucking is a significant player in the state’s economy and lifestyle. Missouri’s trucking industry employs a large percentage of the state’s workforce, accounting for 15% of jobs in 2010.
