Serious injuries and fatalities usually accompany truck accidents

Although semitrailers are the most efficient way to transport goods and materials, these massive trucks can be extremely dangerous. Understandably, sharing crowded roadways with semitrailers can be quite intimidating for Kentucky motorists. Although truck drivers are required to undergo special training and obtain licensing in order to operate these large vehicles, this does not prevent them from making mistakes. Unfortunately, truck accidents usually result in fatalities.

A recent accident involving a semitrailer in Glasgow claimed the lives of two people. The crash involved four vehicles and happened along Happy Valley Road. According to reports, the driver of a westbound semitrailer crossed the center line of the roadway and into oncoming traffic. The semi struck the rear trailer of an eastbound semitrailer, continued on and crashed into a passenger van and a pickup truck, reports said.

Police said the driver of the semitrailer who crossed into oncoming traffic was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the van was critically injured and transported to a local hospital where he later died. A passenger in the van was also injured. Police said they are not sure why the semitrailer crossed the centerline of the highway.

There is more commercial traffic than ever before on roadways in Kentucky and across the country. Those who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in truck accidents could benefit by seeking the services of an experienced legal representative. A successfully litigated lawsuit may result in a much-needed monetary award that families could use for to pay medical expenses and recover financial losses.
