Underriding Accidents in Niagara Falls
Underriding is when a car runs into the rear end of an 18-wheeler or other oversized truck and slides underneath of the rig. The gruesomely predominant outcome of this type of accident is the partial or complete severing of both the car and its occupants. As a result, these collisions have a tragically low survival rate.
