If you or someone you care about has been in a crash involving an 18-wheeler, you know how steeply the odds are stacked against you. A fully-loaded rig can weigh up to 80,000 pounds — easily 20 times heavier than a typical passenger vehicle. Fatalities in big-rig accidents are roughly double those for passenger vehicles — and for a reason. The extra mass of the truck translates into immense force that can crush almost anything, or anyone, in its path.
