Marcellus Shale Field Fracking Trucking Accidents
Because of the size and speed involved in oil and gas truck accidents, the resulting injuries can be severe and catastrophic. When oil and gas companies hire inexperienced, unqualified drivers to operate their trucks, the dangers only increase.
Factors contributing to shale field truck accidents include:
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Driver error
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to adequately train drivers
- Failure to hire qualified drivers
Oil and gas truck accidents can lead to not only serious injuries, but environmental pollution as well. Leaks from overturned trucks can contaminate land, water and air, causing harm to people and environmental resources.
