Man Dies From Injuries Suffered In Tractor-Trailer Accident
Tractor-trailer accident: A Pennsylvania man has died from injuries he suffered when his pick-up truck crashed with a tractor-trailer in New Jersey, reports the Gloucester County Times. The passenger truck flipped on its side coming to rest against an abandoned building.
A typical fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh close to 80,000 pounds, while an average passenger automobile weighs only 3,000 pounds. Due to this size disparity, and the basic laws of physics, any collision between a commercial truck and another vehicle is likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries. If you have been injured, or a loved one has died, in a commercial trucking accident, you need the experienced lawyers of Munley, Munley & Cartwright to protect your rights.
The 59-year-old-driver and his passenger had to be cut from the 1997 Ford F-150 pick-up. They were then airlifted to Cooper University Hospital in Camden where the driver was pronounced dead from severe head injuries he sustained in the crash. The passenger was hospitalized with a concussion.
The driver of the 2006 Freightliner tractor-trailer was uninjured.
If you have been injured or a loved one killed in a vehicle accident that was caused by another person’s carelessness or recklessness, you may be able to recover damages that include medical costs, property loss, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
