Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

Trucking accidents often cause lengthy delays on Alabama roads

Alabama travelers don't always reach their destinations on time. Sometimes, highways heavily laden with traffic or poor weather conditions are the reason. Other obstacles may cause significant travel delays as well, such as trucking accidents or construction work on the road.

A recent collision occurred on Alabama 13 that caused traffic problems for almost four hours. As is often the case in such situations, a detour was set up to re-direct traffic flow away from the scene. Sadly, there was one fatality involved in the tragic accident.

The incident occurred when two vehicles, a car and a tractor-trailer, were traveling in opposite directions on the highway. One was reportedly heading south at the time, while the other was northbound. For reasons yet unknown, the two vehicles collided. The massive crash took place on the driver's side of both vehicles. The impact of the crash was so severe, it sent the car and the tractor-trailer careening off the road.

The car wound up flipped over on its roof. The woman driving the car did not survive her injuries, but the truck driver was apparently taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. One can only imagine how terrible it is to receive a phone call telling of a loved one's death. Those in Alabama and elsewhere adversely affected by trucking accidents often reach out to various people for support, including personal injury attorneys, who can help grieving families address any legal issues that may arise in the aftermaths of fatal vehicle collisions.
