One of, if not the largest package delivery company in the world, the United Parcel Service (or UPS) is easily recognizable in the United States with its brown delivery trucks and gold shield logo.
UPS is headquartered in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Tragically, many delivery trucks, UPS tractor-trailer trucks and other UPS vehicles are responsible for a number of fatal crashes each year across the country.
Common Causes of Connecticut UPS Truck Accidents
Due to the extreme pressure place on UPS employees to deliver packages as quickly as possible, delivery truck accidents are relatively common in Connecticut. Simply putting in extra effort to get the job done quickly can result in negligence which can result in a serious accident.
Some of the most common causes of UPS truck accidents include:
- Failure of the driver to set the truck’s parking brakes when stopping to make a delivery
- Drivers backing up the delivery truck after passing the desired address
- Drivers making sudden stops or quick left turns
- Failure to yield when merging back into traffic
- Poorly trained drivers
Because UPS trucks are much larger in size than the average passenger vehicle, collisions involving a UPS truck can be particularly damaging. Not only can an accident result in a total loss of your car, but injuries from the crash can be far more serious than the average Connecticut car accident.

- Mandatory driver recording for hours-of-service
- Maintenance and repair requirements for trucks
- Drug and alcohol prevention programs for drivers
- Driver training requirements
