Fatal Accidents in Mississippi
Truck accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents that occur on Mississippi roads each year due to the fact that they involve some of the largest vehicles. In just one recent year’s time, approximately 685 people were killed in accidents throughout the state of Mississippi, with a percentage of these accidents involving tractor-trailers. Though truck drivers are specifically trained to be some of the safest drivers on our roads, these accidents still occur in the blink of an eye.
