While there are some crashes that cite mechanical failure as the sole cause,
these statistics are misleading because nearly every crash is caused by
factors in conjunction with mechanical failure. For example, trucks are
designed to handle poor weather, and drivers are trained to handle their
machine safely in most weather conditions. It usually takes these factors
and mechanical failure to lead to a crash.
