Toledo, OH (October 15, 2023) – Two people were injured due to a truck wreck in the Toledo area on Friday, October 13. The crash occurred during the afternoon hours.
Reports from the Ohio Department of Transportation show that a semi-truck was involved in a crash with an unknown number of vehicles on the northbound side of Interstate 475. The incident blocked several lanes on the road, causing delays throughout the area near Dixie Highway.
Authorities closed the roadway for approximately four hours before opening it again due to some fluid leaks and blocking of the lanes.
Two people were transported to local hospitals with injuries following this accident.
The circumstances surrounding the crash are currently being investigated.
We hope the two people hurt due to this crash recover quickly.
Truck accidents are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries across the United States every year. Unfortunately, there are a significant number of accidents that occur that are completely preventable. We can continue to see innocent people hurt as a result of drivers who are sleepy, speeding, or otherwise negligent while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, there are other parties that can be held accountable for truck accidents taking place here in our state.
There are many instances where truck accidents take place as a result of trucking companies cutting corners when hiring drivers. As a result, they hire unqualified drivers to operate their vehicles. Other factors that contribute to truck accidents include manufacturers who are negligent in creating parts for the vehicles, cargo companies who negligently load vehicles, and even maintenance companies who fail to inspect the vehicles to ensure their safety.
