Just as auto makers are moving toward safer vehicles, major truck manufacturers are also trying to make their trucks safer. Each year nearly 4,000 people are killed and over 100,000 are injured in commercial vehicle accidents. This push toward safety is welcome news for the Louisiana families who have lost loved ones to truck accidents.
Many New Orleans residents may have heard about the recent devastating truck accident that killed one comedian and injured "30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan. The wreck occurred when the semi-truck failed to slow for traffic in front of it, forcing it to swerve to avoid collision. However, when it did, the tractor-trailer slammed into the limo bus carrying Morgan and several others.
