When a semi-truck skids resulting in the trailer swinging at a 90-degree angle, the movement is what is known as a “jackknife.” When this happens, the vehicle is completely out of control. The end result can be skidding into or across multiple lanes. It goes without saying that any drivers in its path can be significantly injured or even killed.
