Large commercial trucks are prone to rollover accidents, especially when it comes to maneuvering around curves and sharp turns. Even at a slow speed, a truck can cause a rollover accident depending on the angle of the curve or slope of the road. In some situations, certain trucks such as tanker trucks are even more susceptible to rollovers when not fully loaded. Also, a truck overloaded with cargo can cause instability, leading to a rollover even at a slow speed.
The most common cause of truck rollover accidents, however, is speeding while turning a corner, as it destabilizes the vehicle. Taller vehicles have a higher center of gravity, which is why trucks, and even consumer SUVs have higher rollover rates.
