Common Causes of Truck Rollovers
The following factors affect the stability of a truck and trailer: condition
of the vehicle, height of the load, load position, and shifting of the
loads. A significant number of rollover accidents occur while the truck
is turning, driving through a curve, or on an exit ramp.
As the truck turns, part of the forward forces are directed to the side,
and if they exceed the truck's rollover threshold, the truck rolls
over. A number of turn-related rollovers occur because the driver failed
to pay attention and had to quickly change lanes and begin a turn at an
Truck rollovers are often caused by:
- Inattention or distracted driving, which diverts the driver's eyes
and mind away from the forward roadway, limiting their ability to respond
- Speeding and tailgating reduce the ability to respond to hazards.
- Overcorrecting and its resultant forces can cause the vehicle to roll.
- Roadway hazards such as debris, a stalled vehicle, or an animal crossing
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
in 2012, 3,921 people were killed and another 104,000 were injured in
truck accidents – a 4% increase from 2011. In 12% of those crashes,
either the truck or the other vehicle was negotiating a curve.
