What Causes a Truck to Jackknife in Missouri?

A jackknife accident occurs when the trailer of a tractor trailer pivots at its hitch, swiveling upwards towards the tractor cab. This often causes blocked lanes of traffic in the form of a “V” shape. Jackknife accidents occur suddenly, usually when a tractor trailer truck driver has to quickly apply the brakes to avoid a collision. Jackknife accidents are extremely dangerous because nearby motorists often don’t have time to react, or are incapable of doing so because of other traffic on the roadway.

Jackknife accidents are common in Missouri and happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the more common causes we have encountered over the years include:

  • Inattentive drivers who apply their brakes too hard because he or she was simply not paying attention;
  • Impaired drivers who operate their rig while under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Drivers who have stayed awake too long in an attempt to save on time;
  • Poor vehicle maintenance at the trucking company’s machine shop, that led to brake failure or a steering malfunction.
