A fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. As a result, the force of such a large vehicle crashing into a smaller car or motorcycle can be devastating, especially if your accident occurs on highway like I-99 near Altoona, I-80 near State College or the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania refers to these vehicles as “heavy trucks.” In 2013, there were 6,573 heavy truck accidents in Pennsylvania, resulting in 28 deaths, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
