A 65-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy were both fatally injured. The two victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
The semi-truck tractor-trailer driver was treated for injuries.
The crash is currently being investigated.
We hope the injured victim recovers quickly.
Our warmest sympathies are with the family of the man and child killed in this crash.
Fatal truck accidents take the lives of thousands of people in the United States every year. Many of these accidents happen as a result of negligence. When truck drivers, trucking companies, cargo companies, or even part manufacturers are careless, it can have deadly consequences for others.
Unfortunately, we continue to see innocent people leave their lives as a result of fatal truck accidents. One of the most common factors contributing to these accidents is speeding. When drivers get behind the wheel and fail to maintain control of their vehicles, it can have deadly consequences. We also see many truck accidents take place as a result of cargo-loading companies who are negligent. When cargo is not loaded correctly onto a truck, it can cause a shift and lead to an accident. Negligent maintenance, reckless hiring practices, and other acts of negligence can have severe and deadly consequences.
