Truck fatalities are on the rise nationally despite sophisticated warning systems, automatic braking systems, and other crash avoidance sensors. Comedian Tracy Morgan was hit in New Jersey by a Walmart truck which had all the latest and greatest safety features. How does a large truck with forward radar sensors hit a row of cars you may ask? The answer is typically a distracted truck driver or, as believed in this wreck, driver fatigue. The National Transportation Safety Board believes increased hours on the road have led to a recent increase in truck accident fatalities. The Tracy Morgan wreck is likely to refocus scrutiny on big rig accidents.
