Fatal Truck Accidents in California

In 2012, the state of California saw 341 fatal collisions involving large trucks. That number was reported to have made up 7.3% of all fatal truck accidents across the United States. Due to the sheer nature and power of such large vehicles, it seems fairly obvious that California truck accidents are often among the most severe types of collisions.
