According to the Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Analysis Division, 31 percent of large truck accidents in 2009 were caused by truck driver-related factors including speeding, distracted driving and failing to maintain the proper lane.

A tractor trailer recently caused a crash on I-80 that closed westbound lanes for over three hours. The truck driver rear-ended a converted school bus that was traveling slowly in the right lane. Both vehicles left the road and overturned. Subsequently, both vehicles caught fire. The truck driver was trapped inside his vehicle and was extricated by emergency personnel. He was taken to a local burn unit to treat his critical injuries.
