Truck accidents: I-64 crash results in injuries

In today's world, there is a greater need to transport and deliver goods and services. Because of this need, commercial traffic has increased on roadways across the state of Kentucky. This increased traffic also brings about a higher risk for accidents. Due to the incredible size and weight of most trucks, truck accidents with passenger vehicles are more likely to result in serious injuries and death. Although truck drivers make their living by driving and spend a great amount of time behind the wheel, they still make mistakes just like other drivers.

Recently, an accident involving trucks and several vehicles occurred along Interstate 64 in Bath County. Authorities say the chain reaction crash originally started with a moving truck. According to reports, the moving truck collided with a car. Police say high winds could have pushed the truck and played a role in the collision.

The collision shut I-64 down and traffic became backed up as a result. During the backup, reports indicate a semi-truck swerved to miss the stopped traffic and collided with three other cars. Authorities say two people were injured in the crashes. They were transported to a local medical center with non life-threatening injuries.

As the economy grows, so does the need for transporting goods and services. This means more and more commercial vehicles will be in close proximity with passenger vehicles. Kentucky residents who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones in truck accidents may be able to take legal action. A successfully litigated lawsuit can provide much-needed compensation to help with medical expenses, end-of-life costs and other associated damages.
