For all of the articles and discussions about truck accidents, it’s important to remember that behind these stories are real people with real injuries. Videos can often convey details much more profoundly than words can. Such is the case from the below incident, which was caught on tape and occured sometime before 2009.
There are few details about this truck accident, but it appears left-front tire failure causes a truck driver to completely lose control of his vehicle, swerving into oncoming traffic in the process. The result is a spectacular, fiery crash that is said to have killed both drivers and cause injuries to other passenger vehicles on the roadway.
Once again, this video is a reminder of the danger trucks, big-rigs, and tractor trailers can pose to others on our nation’s highways.
