Although traffic is sparse, the roads are frequented by farm workers, like the ones who were killed in the crash earlier this month.

Welcome back. This week we are discussing truck underride accidents on our blog.
If you have ever been driving behind a tractor trailer you may have noticed two vertical steel bars that extend from the fame of the truck and connect with a horizontal steel bar.

We know a lot about car accidents thanks to ongoing statistics that are collected nationwide. It's safe to say that the main reason behind all the number crunching is safety. Automakers and government agencies want to know the who, what, where, when and why of car crashes. This information often leads to changes which then lead to safer roadways. It seems to be working, if you consider that car accident deaths are at historic lows in our country.
