Deadly Tractor Trailer Crash Claims the Life of One Person in St. Louis

When tractor trailers are on the road, drivers should be careful to use extreme caution. A recent St. Louis truck accident involving a vehicle and a semi-tractor trailer has taken the life of one person, according to an article on the Fox2News website.

The accident occurred at around 7:30 in the evening on I-44 East. A portion of the highway had to be shut down to allow emergency personnel and the Missouri State Highway Patrol to assess the damage and injuries. According to the article, witnesses speculate that the vehicle slammed into the rear section of the semi-tractor trailer. One person died at the scene of the crash, and the other individual was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. That individual is in critical condition as a result.

Accidents with tractor trailers are often very serious, if not fatal. Most of the time, trucks carry extremely heavy loads, and that can cause them to be unstable due to conditions on the roadways or with traffic. As your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, we want to caution you to be extremely careful when you’re traveling on the highways in St. Louis. Accidents like this one are much too common.
