New Mexico is known for picturesque vistas, perfect weather and delicious food. Unfortunately, we have also acquired a reputation for drunk drivers that cause accidents, injuries and fatalities.
Accidents involving trucks often have the most tragic outcomes. The average car is no match against the size and weight of a commercial truck. Tractor trailers in particular can be extremely dangerous because the lower half of cars can slide underneath the vehicle. This type of crash is called an “underride” and is usually fatal for the car’s passengers.
