Tragic Douglas County Georgia Tractor Trailer Trucking Wreck

As I’ve written about before, trucking collisions often cause the most serious injuries and can result in multiple fatalities if the impact is severe enough. Unfortunately, the impact of a 75,000 lb. truck is almost always devastating. Trucking cases are a large part of my practice and I hate to see when negligent drivers cause wrecks like this.

Two women were killed and four people were hurt in a major tractor-trailer collision in Douglas County Georgia on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The tractor-trailer involved struck the driver’s side of a Nissan Sentra, hurdling both vehicles into the southbound land of I-20. The truck pushed the Nissan into two additional vehicles. The driver and the passenger in the Nissan were killed.

The tractor-trailer driver was not injured. Witnesses to the wreck claim that the tractor-trailer ran a red light and that’s what caused the collision. A link to the story can be found here.

These types of cases are complex but Glass & Robson handles them and has a great track record of success. In 2010, Robert was involved in a trucking case where several family members were killed in a violent tractor-trailer collision in Pennsylvania.
