Black Ice Causes Tractor-Trailer Jackknifing Accident


Black ice is the thin transparent layer of ice above a road that looks like normal gravel from afar, but, in fact, is just as slippery as regular ice. As such, truck drivers often maintain normal speeds on black ice and subsequently lose control and jackknife when they try to turn or change lanes. Recently, a tour bus collided with a tractor-trailer that had jackknifed due to black ice, according to The Republican. However, the black ice is not to blame for the accident. Truck drivers are supposed to proceed with caution and assume that the road is frozen even if it does not look icy.
