My Fox Chicago reported yesterday on another Chicago causality caused by a truck crash on local roadways.
The accident occurred early Wednesday morning in West Chicago on Powis Road. About twenty minutes before 4 a.m. a pick-up truck struck the back end of a semi-trailer. Both vehicles were southbound, with the semi traveling down in front. According to investigators the pick-up truck hit the back of the trailer on the truck. That initial collision caused the pick-up to spin out of control. It ended up sliding underneath the trailer.
The pick-up driver was dead upon arrival of emergency personnel. The truck driver was not harmed. Information is still being gathered to better understand what might have caused the first impact between the two vehicles.
Our Chicago truck crash lawyers at Levin & Perconti are painfully aware of the consequences of many accidents with semi-trailers. In far too many cases, those involved are serious injured or killed in the wreckage. Our attorneys have combined decades of experience working with victims and their families following all sorts of deadly collisions on the road.
The causes of many road incidents are initially unclear. It is only with clear investigation, questioning, and analysis that accurate conclusions can be reached about what really happened. When the driver of the truck, the trucking operator, or the manufacturer of the truck could have done something that would have minimized the harm, a truck lawsuit may be appropriate. Be sure to weigh your options and talk to a legal expert to ensure that nothing is left undone.
