Truck underride collision accidents are far too common
Truck underride collisions are some of the most dangerous types of truck accidents. Underride collision accidents occur when a vehicle fully or partially passes underneath a large truck or trailer. This often results in the roof of a vehicle being crushed and may lead to serious injury of passengers. Most often, rear underride collisions and underride collisions occur at night. When a truck that isn’t visible marked or lit merges into a lane, other vehicles may have difficulty spotting it. Reflective lights and underride prevention devices may help prevent underride collision accidents, but many older trucks are still out on the road.
