Mississippi Truck Accidents
Truck collisions are some of the worst accidents that happen throughout the Magnolia State. A percentage of the hundreds of deaths that occur per year due to traffic accidents in Mississippi may be attributed to truck accidents. This is due to the massive size/weight difference between passenger vehicles and commercial trucks, as well as the time it takes a large semi-truck to come to a complete stop.
