Large commercial trucks like big rigs, 18 wheeler, tractor trailers, and other large box trucks are more likely to result in the wrongful death of an innocent person than any other motor vehicle on the roadway. This is particularly true on New Mexico’s busiest and largest highways and interstates, particularly I-40, I-25, and I-10. This is because of the shear size, weight, and speed of a large truck which becomes like a battering ram on the road. Since these trucks have the power to twist steel and bend frames of smaller, passenger vehicles, the devastation to other people is catastrophic.
