What is a jackknife accident?
Truck jackknife accidents generally involve tractor-trailer combinations. The jackknife occurs when the tractor and the trailer don’t travel in unison, such as when a truck turns too sharply, the tractor and trailer travel at different speeds, or the tractor skids, causing the trailer to push the tractor/cab around (like a jackknife) so that the cab and trailer are at sharp angles from each other instead of directly behind each other.
As a result of a jackknife, the truck can’t move until the tractor is disconnected from the trailer or the tractor can be aligned with the trailer. When a truck jackknifes, the truck can veer into other lanes of travel or spread across several lanes of travel. The freight can also spill.
