We hope the injured victims are able to recover fully following this accident. Our warmest thoughts are with them and their families at this time.
Truck accidents devastate the lives of victims and their families, and our state sees countless people injured each year as a result of these accidents. Unfortunately, there are also many instances where victims lose their lives due to the negligence of others in fatal truck accidents.
The leading factors in commercial vehicle accidents that we see across our state include drivers who are fatigued or fall asleep at the wheel, those who run red lights at intersections, motorists who ignore stop signs at busy intersections, drivers who are under the influence of substances, drivers who fail to adjust their speed to road conditions, and inclement weather conditions. Additionally, drivers who fail to yield the right of way to other motorists during turns or while changing lanes contribute to these accidents.
