Miami Tractor-Trailer Accident Kills Two

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 8, 2015

In late May, a 17-year-old girl and a 29-year-old man from Miami were killed when a tractor-trailer with construction materials on it pulled out onto the Interstate and the man’s car slammed into the truck. The crash caused concrete barriers to fall from the truck onto the car, killing both passengers. Authorities are investigating whether or not the barriers were properly secured.

Often, we drive near trucks and other vehicles carrying large loads of materials, and trust that they are secured properly. As this accident shows, that is not always the case, and falling materials can cause serious injuries, and even death.
