Framingham, MA (May 18, 2023) – On May 17, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation reported in a motor vehicle accident took place in the Framingham area that sent one person to an area hospital with injuries.
Reports provided by authorities show that a MassDOT pickup truck and a dumpster truck collided on Interstate 90. The crash prompted the closure of the eastbound side of the roadway near mile marker 111.
One person was hurt as a result of the crash. Paramedics responded to the scene to provide care to the victim. The injured party was then transported to a local hospital for further treatment and evaluation.
The incident is currently being investigated by the Massachusetts State Police.
We hope the injured victim recovers quickly.
Truck accidents are unfortunately all too common on our roads. Due to their size and weight, these types of accidents can cause devastating injuries and damages. Tens of thousands of other victims are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Many of these accidents can be attributed to some form of negligence.
One of the most common causes is driver error, such as distracted driving or failure to obey traffic laws. Truck drivers may be under pressure to meet tight deadlines and drive long hours, leading to fatigue and impaired driving ability.
Another factor in truck accidents is improper maintenance or equipment failure. Trucks require regular maintenance checks to ensure that brakes, tires, and other components are functioning properly. When these systems fail due to neglect or faulty parts, it can lead to serious accidents.
Weather conditions also play a role in truck accidents due to the fact that it make it more difficult for drivers to see the road ahead or maintain control of their vehicle. In some cases, roads may be closed due to hazardous weather conditions but trucks are still on the roads.
Another cause of truck accidents is overloaded cargo or improperly secured loads. When trucks carry too much weight or have unsecured items within them, they become harder for drivers to control, which can lead them into an accident.
