Introducing Under-Ride Crash Legislation In KY

Under-ride crashes involving tractor-trailers kill around 200 people each year.Under-ride crashes are when vehicles crash under the rear bumper or under the sides of tractor-trailers.In many cases, people inside the car are seriously injured or even decapitated.While there are regulations making the rear bumpers safer, there is currently no legislation that creates safety features for the sides.Families across the country who have lost loved ones in this kind of crash are now pushing lawmakers to change that including in KY.
