Semis and big rigs are commercial vehicles that consist of a trailer and cab that are usually joined by a fifth wheel or coupler. The cab and trailer (or multiple trailers) can move independently of each other and in an accident they can move in opposite directions, coming to rest in a position that resembles a jackknife, which is how these collisions got their name.
