Trucking accidents like this one often devastate communities

When a member of an Alabama school program is known and loved by hundreds of students and adults throughout the community, a sudden, unexpected tragedy can be intensely sorrowful. Trucking accidents often wreak this type of devastation, as made evident by one that occurred on a recent Thursday night. It was a fatal collision that took the life of a local girls' basketball coach.

The 43-year-old coach had just led his team to victory and was traveling back home when the horrendous crash took place. The other vehicle involved in the collision was a tractor-trailer. It was approximately 10 p.m. when the beloved sports leader was pronounced dead at the scene.

Those who knew the man said there isn't a single negative thing to say about him. He worked tirelessly in his career, coaching football, track and basketball teams through the years. Apparently, coaching was a long-standing tradition in the man's family as his own father had also been a head football coach at various schools in the area.

Sadly, the younger of the two coaches has left a wife and two children without their husband and father. Trucking accidents in Alabama such as this one are often later found to have been caused by driver fatigue or some other type of negligence. In such cases, it is possible for a spouse or other immediate family member of a fatal accident victim to file a wrongful death lawsuit in a civil court to seek justice on behalf of the decedent.
