Many people are aware of how dangerous it can be to get hit by a commercial-sized vehicle. We know that huge semi trucks are heavy and powerful and can cause catastrophic damage in any collision. These vehicles are also difficult to operate and take longer to speed up and slow down. However, a semi truck does not even need to be moving to pose a threat to drivers.
Recently, for example, a man was killed when his car hit a truck that was stopped on the side of the road on I-94 in Illinois. The accident is under investigation, but this tragic crash serves as a grim reminder that even a stopped truck can be a threat to motorist safety.
