Welcome back to our third and final post on truck underride accidents this week.
As we stated previously, truck underride accidents have been a major problem on American roads for several decades, though it is a problem that has largely been ignored by regulators. However, one woman -- with the help of social media -- has finally convinced the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to review and consider revising truck underride guard regulations.
The woman was severely injured and tragically lost her two teenage daughters in a 2013 truck underride accident. Since recovering from her injuries, the woman has been fighting for stronger regulations in effort to prevent other families from going through what she has been through.
