Oversized vehicle accidents happen for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes the driver forgets to check a side view mirror.  Other times a smaller vehicle will cut it off in traffic.

Accidents that occur while turning a corner can occur due to the driver’s failure to properly gauge the angle and space.
