There are some motor vehicle accidents that seem to happen in slow motion. You might see the semitruck coming straight for you but you can't do anything to stop it. This is a harrowing situation for anyone to be involved in. When you live to deal with the aftermath, you might soon realize that you have more to deal with than just the physical injuries.
Truckers are in control of vehicles that weigh around 80,000 or more. These large vehicles have the capability to kill or injure people on the roads just because they are so large and heavy. It is imperative that drivers have technology available that helps them keep everyone around their trucks as safe as possible.
Officers with the Gainesville Police Department continue to investigate a fatal crash that claimed the life of a 24-year-old Cumming woman the morning of Monday, Nov. 13. The 11-car crash occurred near the intersection of West Ridge Road and Georgia Highway 60, also known as Queen City Parkway.
As we move into the holiday season, there are likely going to be more semitrucks on the highway. These trucks serve an important purpose, but they can also be a hazard to other drivers on the road. These large trucks have blind spots that drivers might not be able to avoid. They also carry heavy cargo that can make the truck shift if it isn't secured properly.
Semitrucks are large vehicles that are difficult to maneuver. All drivers who are driving these trucks must ensure that they are driving in a safe manner because failing to do so can lead to some very serious accidents.
Semitruck crashes are devastating events that can cause catastrophic injuries and even deaths. One thing that victims of these accidents might choose to do is to seek compensation for the injuries they suffered when the accident occurred.
