Roll Over Truck Crashes
Big rigs are much more susceptible to rollover when they are top-heavy and encounter an incline that cannot be navigated safely. The entrance ramps to highways in Houston may have a slight curve but certainly are not dangerous at reasonable speeds.
The truck roller is a leading cause of injury to professional truck drivers. Extra caution needs to be used when entering curves to make sure that the speed of the vehicle is at or below the recommended speed for the exit ramp.
