Mining And Logging Trucks Cause Serious Crashes
In March 2015, four people were injured when the driver of a coal truck lost control of the vehicle. It tipped over and slid into the opposite lane, crashing into a pickup truck and causing another collision with an SUV. In November 2015, another coal truck driver lost control while making a left turn. The truck overturned on top of a pickup.
These incidents are only two of the many coal and mining truck accidents that occur regularly across the country.

Incorrect Loading Is Often One Of The Problems
Truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to comply with weight restrictions. They are also supposed to take other steps to make transporting coal, timber and other products as safe as possible. Unfortunately, many trucks are overloaded, making them more difficult to stop.
The nature of the products being transported also plays a role. Coal can sometimes shift, and logs are difficult to stack symmetrically. These issues can make coal trucks or logging trucks unstable and prone to tip over.
