TANKER TRUCK ACCIDENTS
Accidents involving trucks, tractor trailers or semi-trucks are nearly always disastrous due to their size and weight. Tanker trucks that carry fuel, oil and other flammable liquids have the ability to catch fire and explode on impact. Accidents involving a tanker truck with flammable liquids pose another threat as they can burn at extreme temperatures that can melt, destroy or compromise the structural integrity of roadway structures, bridges and overpasses. Another issue with a tanker truck is if they are not a certain amount full, they are at risk of turning over or jack-knifing.

Liquid Cargo And The Slosh Factor
Due to the fact that liquid cargo cannot be secured or tied down like other types of cargo can, there are other various risks that may attribute to an accident. If the tanker is under-filled, the liquid is splashing around inside and it makes for a constant weight shift of the large vehicle. This is one way an accident can happen because the vehicle is unstable while being driven. This occurrence has been studied and has come to be known as “the slosh factor”.
