When commercial trucks collide with smaller vehicles, the smaller vehicle usually sustains the heavier damage. This is because 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles have a significantly greater mass than almost anything else on the road. A semitrailer or tractor-trailer, when fully loaded, can easily weigh 10 or 15 times more than a passenger car.
As a result, any person who is in a car, on a motorcycle or bicycle, or in the path of a commercial truck can be severely injured or killed in a collision.
