Causes Of Runaway Trailer Accidents
Equipment malfunction is typically to blame for runaway trailer situations. Cargo trailers may possess insufficient breakaway cables and chains. Regular inspection and maintenance by truck operators and commercial trucking mechanics are the only ways to prevent these accidents from happening.
In other instances, trailers may become disconnected from inclement weather or road conditions, such as large potholes and rocks on the road. Lastly, operator error can be a cause of a runaway trailer, where a driver fails to connect the truck and trailer together in a proper manner.
