Trucking Accident Lawsuit Sues County

A trucking accident trial is underway in connection with an accident that occurred in March of 2006 in which a woman was killed and her husband was seriously personally injured after their car was struck by a truck. According to News-Journal Online, the lawsuit is against the County and alleges that the County failed to warn the motorists of the “unreasonably dangerous” intersection. The cop testifying at trial, that observed the scene following the accident, says that there were no signs that the truck driver attempted to stop at the stop sign at the intersection. The truck driver claims that he did not see the stop sign until it was too late for him to come to a complete stop. The Plaintiff ‘s car accident attorney claims that the lack of rumble strip is another error on the county’s part, but the attorney for the County says that this was not relevant and that the truck accident was the driver’s vault.
