Truck driver fatigue often behind trucking accidents

No one is immune from getting tired while behind the wheel. It happens to most people at some point -- even commercial drivers.

Despite these regulations, numerous trucking accidents in Maryland and all across the United States are the result of truck driver fatigue.
