There is an extremely high possibility of severe injuries and fatalities in an accident between an 80,000-pound commercial truck and a passenger vehicle. Although truck drivers are specially trained to operate these vehicles and are responsible for conducting themselves in a safe and conscientious manner, some drivers still choose to prioritize profits over following the rules.
