18-Wheeler Collision in Albuquerque
New Mexico has a great number of interstates. The state has a combined 992 miles of interstate roads. Out of 43,000 crashes in the state each year, 1,400 of them involve semi-trucks, accounting for 3 percent of all traffic accidents.
18-wheelers are massive in size. Their weight creates significant force in a car crash. Smaller passenger vehicles are at a great disadvantage, and their occupants are more likely to be injured. These accidents can result in costly damages in many cases.
