Improper truck maintenance can have catastrophic consequences

The commercial trucking industry is an important part of our economy, especially during this time of year. Although this industry has made our lives more convenient, it also comes with dangers. Many of these dangers are averted when commercial carriers follow the regulations that are designed to help reduce the risk of trucking accidents. A failure to do so can have tragic consequences.

NTSB: Driver in fatal Baltimore school bus crash was speeding

The near head-on collision involving a Baltimore school bus, a Ford Mustang and an MTA transit bus made national news. According to sources, the school bus was traveling on its regular route in the early morning hours of Tuesday, Nov. 1, when it suddenly smashed into the back of the Mustang and then careened across into the oncoming traffic lane, where it hit a commuter bus nearly head-on. The two bus drivers and four passengers were killed. Eleven more were injured.
