How Accidents Occur
An underride accident occurs when a car or other vehicle collides with a large truck and actually becomes pinned underneath the trailer. A majority of these accidents are the result of rear-end collisions where the smaller vehicle becomes trapped underneath the back of the truck. These accidents are possible because of the height and clearance underneath a tractor-trailer. In some cases, the roof of the smaller vehicle may cave in or may be sheared off completely.
