This provides key insight into why so many accidents occur in Albuquerque each year, with many resulting in serious injuries.
With Albuquerque being a major transportation hub, a significant percentage of the accidents that occur throughout the city annually involve commercial vehicles. Albuquerque commercial truck accidents are among the most deadly, and are frequently caused by some type of driver error or truck maintenance issue.
