The shoulder of an interstate can be a dangerous place to park, even if it is just for a short while. Recently, a fatal accident occurred on Interstate 20 in the westbound lanes. The Georgia truck accident happened at about 4:45 a.m. and involved a tractor trailer that was parked on the shoulder of the roadway.
In the morning hours in early February, there were two separate accidents on the Georgia section of Interstate 75 that involved semi trucks. The first truck accident occurred before dawn in the southbound lanes just north of the state line. It was reported that one semi truck traveling south hit another that was parked on the side of the road. A crane had to assist in clearing the wreckage.
Getting a flat tire while driving on a Georgia interstate can be a frightening experience. It would be easy to lose control of the vehicle, which could lead to an accident. Safely pulling onto the shoulder of the highway may seem like the end of the danger, but that is not always the case. An individual becomes vulnerable to a car or tractor trailer accident while stopped on the shoulder to change the tire.
A Georgia resident can suffer any number of serious injuries in a car accident. When people think of serious injuries, they often think of head trauma, spinal cord injuries or even burns. Of all the possible physical calamities that can befall an accident victim, the most underestimated injury might just be whiplash.
Most drivers of passenger vehicles in Georgia would agree that being too close to an 18-wheeler can make them nervous. The size of a truck alone can be intimidating, but not knowing whether the driver will make a mistake and cause an accident may be at the forefront of the minds of many drivers. In many instances, those fears are founded since truck driver error is the primary cause of accidents involving trucks.
Truck drivers have a tremendous responsibility to Georgia motorists and pedestrians. Everyone who uses our roadways rely on truck drivers to pay attention and to remain vigilant while operating a vehicle of immense size and weight. When an accident involving an 18-wheeler does occur, it is often due to truck driver error.
When a driver loses control of a vehicle, he or she may become frightened and often over-corrects. In doing so, this might cause the vehicle to be in a far worse position than it was when the driver first lost control. As many Georgia residents already know, these situations can cause either loss of life or serious injury in a car accident.
