A tractor-trailer burst into flames on May 20, 2015, after crashing into two cars. The truck accident happened on Interstate 16 west of Savannah, Georgia. In the end, seven vehicles were damaged and five people were killed in the accident.
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.
