Cement truck wrecks are usually extremely serious accidents because the truck’s weight, when loaded, can weigh up to 60 tons. These vehicles are often called mixer trucks, and a fully loaded cement truck can roll over very easily given its extremely high center of gravity.
Because the weight of the truck is so significant, the truck driver’s training 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, which can lead to accidents.
