Each day typically brings news of more accidents on our roadways involving large trucks and trailers. It takes only a short trip on a highway for most travelers to come into contact with these large vehicles that transport all sorts of materials from one side of the country to the other. Obviously the transportation capability of these machines is a vital service upon which we all depend. However, that does not excuse any truck driver or trucking company from doing everything in its power to ensure that the travel is as safe as possible.
It is also imperative for all other drivers to take extra care when on the roadway around trucks. Sadly too often that does not occur, leading to devastating trucking accidents.
Earlier this week WNDU News reported on another semi accident. The crash occurred around 3pm on Tuesday. A 21-year old driver from Illinois was traveling in a rural area when he accidentally failed to stop at a stop sign. At the same time a 50-year old truck driver was traveling on the road that intersected the one with the stop sign. As a result the semi collided with the car. The car was smashed in the crash and a female passenger was rushed to a local hospital, but fortunately, there appear to be no fatalities in this crash.
