Why Are Truck Accidents So Common in Illinois

Large trucks are essential to the economy because they transport goods throughout the state as well as the country.

When it comes to Illinois, these types of collisions are fairly common. There are a few explanations why they happen so regularly here, but one of the biggest reasons is because Illinois is one of the states with the highest amounts of freight being hauled. This means that there is a higher volume of large trucks on the road because there is so much freight to pick-up, deliver and transport.
