Introduction to Truck Rollover Crashes
A large truck causation study was conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration where it evaluated 239 crashes involving a truck rollover. The in-depth analysis revealed that nearly half of the truck rollovers were the result of:
- The truck driver failing to adjust speed to curves in the road (predominantly on-and-off ramps)
- The load being carried
- Condition of the brakes
- Road surface and intersection conditions
The second major crash contributor involved inattention such as: the driver being inattentive, dozing or falling asleep, and driver distraction, all of which lead to situations where the driver quickly changed direction resulting in a truck rollover.
A third major crash contributor involved steering; for example, over-steering to the point that the steering overcorrection caused the truck to rollover. Lastly, loads are a frequent problem when drivers fail to take into account the weight and height of the load.
