Cement truck wrecks are usually extremely serious accidents because the weight of the truck when loaded can weigh up to 60 tons. These vehicles are often called mixer trucks and a fully loaded cement truck can rollover very easily given it its extremely high center of gravity.
Because the weight of the truck is so significant, the training of the truck driver is critical to the safe operation of the vehicle. Unfortunately, cement truck drivers are often under the gun to get the cement to the worksite quickly and that can lead to accidents.
