One man in stable condition following Ohio semi-trailer accident

When it comes to trucks, accidents may be different than regular car accidents because of their unique characteristics. Trucks have long bodies, which makes them difficult to turn. Truck drivers are often forced to use more than one lane of traffic in making a right turn. Trucks are also larger and generally carrying heavy loads, thereby making truck accidents significantly more dangerous.

A recent crash in Ohio, near the intersection of Ohio 47 and Lindsey Road, involved a semi-cab and a turning pick-up truck. The accident occurred at night and the driver of the pick-up was taken to a local hospital after suffering cuts on his legs and face. The driver was stuck in his pick-up for nearly an hour and is now listed in stable condition.

According to deputies, the semi-truck driver tried to avoid the pick-up truck as the pick-up turned right onto Ohio 47 and into the lane of oncoming traffic. But even after swerving, the semi-cab crashed into the truck.

The semi-truck was not carrying a trailer. Even without the added weight, the impact of the semi-cab snapped a telephone pole. The driver of the semi was uninjured. An investigation continues into the trucking accident. An scene insepction will hopefully lead to the collection of important evidence, like adequate turning radiuses, and should help to determine any liability on the part of either driver

Someone who suffers an injury in a truck or car accident because of the negligence of another person may be able to recovery money for certain damages, including physical, emotional financial losses. A personal injury lawsuit is one way to recover monetary compensation from a liable party.
