Tractor trailer accident kills 1, injures 2

Tractor trailers are a common sight on many roadways across the country. While these big rigs are usually passed without any incident, there are unfortunately instances in which those same trucks are involved in, or possibly cause, accidents that sometimes take the lives of other drivers on the road. One such example of a terrible accident recently occurred in Illinois.

A 34-year-old man was killed and a two other men were injured on Highway 20 in an accident involving two tractor trailers. The 34-year-old man was driving his truck when he crashed into the overturned second truck driven by the other two men. The 34-year-old man died at the scene of the accident while the other two men were transported to a hospital for treatment.

While this incident will certainly be investigated further to find out exactly what caused the tractor trailer to overturn, there could possibly be negligence involved. If an investigation does show that there was negligence on the part of the driver of the overturned vehicle, there could possibly be damages recovered including lost wages, funeral expenses and more.

In situations such as this accident, nothing can replace a loved one. However, any loss of life caused by the negligence of another person deserves justice. Seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney can help those in such situations move forward with a solid legal action and hopefully begin the recovery process in a more comfortable way.
