Four Sustain Michigan Truck Accident Injuries in Chain Reaction Crash

July 26, 2013

Four people were left with Michigan Truck Accident Injuries following a multi-vehicle chain reaction crash yesterday. The incident happened just before noon along Interstate 70, outside the town of Halfway, Michigan.

According to the Herald-Mail, traffic along the westbound lanes of the highway passing over Interstate 81 had begun to slow due to congestion. A tractor-trailer traveling along the stretch of road failed to see the traffic ahead and slowed down. The truck didn't have enough room and plowed into the rear end of a Honda Odyssey van that was hauling a trailer.

The impact of the initial crash forced the big rig to then collide with four other vehicles before coming to rest.

A woman and two children were extricated from their vehicle and rushed to a local trauma center for treatment. One other motorist involved in the crash was also taken to the hospital for further examination.

Due to the sheer size and weight of tractor-trailers, they often require as much as a mile to come to a complete stop. The Michigan Personal Injury Lawyers with Michigan Injury Lawyers say this incredible amount of space needed to stop is often a factor involved in tractor-trailer conditions. The firm suggests speaking with an attorney if you have been injured in a collision involving a big rig.
