Man killed in head-on collsion with large truck

Whenever large trucks are on the road, there is the potential for tragedy. Just such tragedy struck recently when a man was killed in an accident involving commercial trucks on Route 4, near Bridgewater.

The accident occurred when a large truck swerved across lanes to avoid a smaller vehicle, resulting in a head-on collision with the victim, who was driving a large oil transport truck. Sadly, while death was not instantaneous, the man did succumb to his injuries at the scene.

Reports indicate that many factors may have played a part in the accident, including inclement weather. Apparently, there had been a spell of freezing rain prior to the crash, which had left the road covered in a dangerous layer of ice.

A woman driving along the road hit a patch of the ice and lost control of her vehicle as she was negotiating a curve. her car entered into the oncoming traffic lane, placing directly in the path of a large truck. The large truck reacted to avoid striking the out-of-control car, swerving out of his lane, and instead striking the oil truck.

Even for those who are driving safely, circumstances beyond your control can come seemingly out of nowhere and start a chain of events that spell disaster. If you have been involved in a n accident, yo deserve to be informed about whether you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. An experienced, qualified lawyer can help walk you through the process of filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim, awhile ensuring that your rights remain protected.
