Why are accidents involving a commercial truck more likely to cause serious injuries than accidents with another passenger vehicle?

A fully loaded commercial truck may weigh more than 80,000 pounds. But a passenger car weighs about 3,000 pounds. A loaded truck cannot stop as fast as a passenger vehicle, and the enormous force of 80,000 pounds slamming into 3,000 pounds often obliterates the latter.
