An accident involving a semi-truck has the potential to create a considerable amount of damage. Such an accident can also pose the risk of individuals suffering serious or fatal injuries. Unfortunately, similar outcomes are not uncommon when a big rig is involved in a collision with smaller vehicles, and if fatalities occur, wrongful death claims could also result.
A recent multi-car accident in Pennsylvania unfortunately had fatal results. It was reported that a semi-truck collided with the rear of a car that contained four occupants and also crashed into the rear of a pickup truck. The accident apparently occurred at an intersection where a traffic light is present. Specific information on how the crash happened was not detailed in the report.
