Over the past month, there have been several truck crashes in the Pacific Northwest.

They include a semi truck that careened into several construction trucks parked along the shoulder of I-5. Another, involved a tanker truck that overturned on SR 405 in Bellevue. Yet another, involved a semi that went off the road, hit several trees and caught fire killing the driver.

What seems common in each of these crashes is that the truck driver lost control of his truck and trailer.  Speed, inattentiveness, lack of training and the failure to use defensive driving skills are some of the factors that contribute to a truck driver losing control of his truck and trailer.
