Jackknifing Truck Accidents in New Hampshire
Jackknifing is one of the top causes of truck accidents in New Hampshire. As the name suggests, jackknifing refers to the event when a cab and trailer fold towards one another, producing an appearance similar to a folding pocketknife. This type of truck accident increases risks to drivers of smaller vehicles both in front of and behind the truck, often resulting in override or underride, along with serious and fatal injuries.
