  1. This story shows how one mistake – a single vehicle crossing the centerline – can start a chain reaction of events that cause serious injury and destruction. Debris from car accidents or even blown tires can cause damage to other vehicles; it can also cause drivers to swerve out of the way and possibly collide with another vehicle or a guardrail. Vehicles like dump trucks can amplify the danger since they weigh several tons when carrying full loads.
