Ontario Truck Accident Results in Fatality

Accidents in which a truck hits a car can be devastating for occupants of the car. Trucks have a size and weight advantage which tends to lead to severe damage to the car impacted. This leads to a higher risk of injury for the driver and any passengers of the car. Injuries that can occur in a car vs. truck accident include:

  • Broken Bones
  • Internal Injuries
  • Spinal Cord, Head or Neck Injury
  • Burns
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Death

Often driver error is the cause of the crash. In a recent Ontario truck accident the driver is suspected of driving under the influence. In total the big-rig caused three crashes. The first one occurred around 1am and the truck driver left the scene. Unfortunately the driver of the sedan was killed. The truck was later abandoned after it had been crashed into a wall that divides the freeway and on-ramp. Another motorist indicated the truck had hit their car as well. An investigation is ongoing.

The driver of the truck was found walking on the freeway and was taken into custody. It is possible he will face manslaughter, driving under the influence and hit and run charges.

It is not always possible to avoid a car accident especially when the driver makes a serious mistake or is under the influence of alcohol. However, car drivers should be aware that a truck has a large blind spot making it difficult to see smaller vehicles traveling in close proximity. Motorists need to pay attention to their location with respect to big-rigs, especially when traveling on the freeway.
