In Hollywood and South Florida, squeeze play accidents are a serious type of trucking collision. This type of collision occurs because of the size and length of tractor-trailers. These vehicles are so large that when they are making a right turn they need to veer left first. To some motorists behind the truck, it may look as though the truck is just making a lane change. If the car tries to pass the truck on the right as the truck is making a turn, the truck will swing into the smaller vehicle, effectively crushing it or squeezing it into a curb, a wall, a barrier, or other cars.
Squeeze play accidents are terrifying. Passenger car drivers may be trapped in their vehicle with literally no place to go and a large tractor-trailer weighing tens of thousands of pounds careening towards them. If the truck crashes into the smaller vehicle, the impact and the crash may be enough to cause serious damage to the smaller vehicle and to the passengers inside.
