On Thursday morning, there were two people injured in a Butler County accident involving a tri-axle truck and a car. Butler County emergency services were called to the scene as police investigated the crash. There was a diesel fuel spill on the roadway that could have contributed to the accident. In fact, it was reported that about 125 gallons of fuel had been spilled.
When a vehicle driver has been involved in an accident with any type of truck, the results can be devastating due to the sheer size of large trucks. Trucks are thousands of pounds heavier than your average car. When any type of truck has been driving more than 60 MPH on the highway and you are in an accident, it can lead to devastating results. Each year, thousands upon thousands of people are killed in these accidents and many more injured, just like the two people injured in the Butler County crash yesterday.
Have you been involved in a truck accident and need our help as you work through the legalities of your case? In some cases, liability may not be so clear when it comes to certain accidents. Especially for accidents involving a driver of a truck, it is not unseen that they were actually on work hours. In this case, the employer could be on the hook for your injuries as well as the driver. This is especially true in cases where a truck driver employer failed to train the employee before putting them out on the roads.
