Crashes involving large trucks are among the most catastrophic accidents in Pennsylvania. It could involve a tractor-trailer rollover on Johnstown Expressway, or a jackknife crash on Interstate 99 in Altoona. The damage to other vehicles, and the injuries sustained can be devastating to the residents and families throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania.
Trucking companies are obliged to ensure that their drivers are experienced and their vehicles are operating functionally. But sometimes truck drivers can fail to operate a large commercial vehicle responsibly – resulting in a rear-end accident on Route 219 in Johnstown. Trucking companies may even fail to make sure their vehicles are safe to drive – resulting in a tire blowout on Route 322 near State College. This creates a major liability to other motorists on Pennsylvania roadways.
