Four tractor-trailers collide on Alabama freeway

Any automobile accident can be severe but the involvement of large commercial vehicles has the potential for even more damage to be done. A tractor trailer accident, even without serious injuries, can leave roadways blocked and a trail of debris to be collected. Alabama roadways see a wide variety of such accidents all too often.

An example of such an incident was reported recently in Cleburne County, Alabama when four large commercial trucks were involved in one accident. The tractor-trailer crash occurred around 4:00 a.m. along I-20 approximately one mile east of Exit 199. One truck driver was airlifted to a hospital but no other injuries were noted in the article. The cause of the accident was not detailed as the collision remains under investigation.

Even without any fatalities, the accident clearly caused severe damage to the vehicles as debris was still being collected from the freeway more than five hours later. One of the trucks landed on its side during the accident. On the same day, nearby Alabama roads saw yet another commercial semi truck crash in Heflin. In this particular truck accident, two commercial trucks collided but no injuries were sustained.

Commercial truck accidents can leave trucking companies and truck drivers at risk for serious consequences, depending upon the cause of the collision. They can also leave motorists at risk if involved. Anyone who has been a party to a commercial vehicle accident may wish to consider a consultation with an attorney to learn how to stay protected.
