Semi trucks are an all too common sight on Montana roads. The average semi truck weighs close to 40 tons (80,000 pounds) and extends anywhere from 60 to 80 feet. With so many of these massive transport vehicles on the road, it’s a certainty that collisions with cars and smaller trucks will occur. And semi truck collisions often have deadly results.
