You've probably felt yourself growing tired behind the wheel before. The sound of the road and the passing of the lines create a monotonous, endless repetition that can start to put you to sleep, especially if you were already tired when you got in the car. If you've been there, you should know that this is actually pretty common in Illinois and all across the United States.
Many things can lead to truck accidents in Illinois, from reckless driving to simple driver error. However, one of the more common causes of serious accidents is something under the surface: mechanical errors caused by poor maintenance or a lack of overall maintenance. When the brakes go out or some other significant issue develops, there may be little a driver can do to avoid a crash.
