There are about nine million large trucks with a weight rating greater than 10,000 pounds on American roadways. Due to California’s large produce industry, our highways and roads see a high frequency of trucks and big rigs. Palmdale and Lancaster have their share of big-rig and truck accidents. In 2010, around 3,500 people were killed in the United States in large truck accidents. Almost 75% of these fatalities are the occupants of cars or other passenger vehicles involved in the collisions.
