Of all the different types of trucking accidents that can occur, drunk driving accidents are some of the most tragic, not to mention the most preventable. The fact that driving while intoxicated is dangerous is common knowledge. Truck drivers must undergo extensive training, testing, and background checks before they are allowed to operate a commercial truck on the highways. Federal trucking regulations also prohibit truckers from driving while intoxicated, which means that there is no excuse for any truck driver who causes an accident due to drunk driving.
Types of Drunk Driving Accidents
When a person becomes drunk, their reflexes and common sense become dulled. They lose some of their ability to reason or to react to sudden dangers. As a result, drunken truck drivers can swerve into oncoming traffic and cause a head-on collision, travel through an intersection against a red light and cause a T-bone accident, or hit a stopped car from behind in a rear-end collision.
