Three Vehicle Accident Injures Two Women

Usually, when semi-truck accidents are reported, it’s the truck driver who is at fault. Very rarely does the burden of fault fall upon the driver of a four-wheeled car. However, a recent accident was reported on the Area Wide News website, where a semi-truck driver appears to have lessened the severity of an accident that was caused by another driver.

According to the article, the accident took place on Highway 63 just outside St. Louis. The semi-truck swerved to miss a Toyota that had crossed over the center line. At that point, the Toyota hit the axles of the trailer, and then struck the vehicle that was behind the semi-truck. That crash was head-on.

The women who were driving both of the vehicles were transported to local hospitals for their injuries. The semi-truck driver was not injured. The article is unclear as to what caused the Toyota to cross over the center line, and there’s an ongoing investigation into this accident.

Sometimes semi-trucks cause accidents, and because they have to abide by a different set of rules on the road, it’s important to contact a St. Louis truck accident attorney if you’re involved in an accident with one. You may be entitled to compensation, and you may also be able to file a case against the driver and the trucking company. Your St. Louis truck accident attorney can advise you about what you should do.
