Local Truck Accident Still Under Investigation

A Moscow Mills, Missouri man was injured during the first week in the new year in a Missouri tractor-trailer accident which occurred in Lincoln County, MO. The driver of the car, whose name has not yet been released, was driving on southbound US Highway 61. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, the man was attempting to pass a tractor-trailer when his car struck the left rear of the Peterbilt 18-wheeler, also driven by a man from Moscow Mills. Once the car came into contact with the side of the tractor-trailer it spun out of control, crashing and overturning. While the truck driver was uninjured, the driver of the car was taken to St. Joseph Hospital West in Lake St. Louis via a Lincoln County Ambulance where he was treated for injuries resulting from the car/truck accident.

This particular truck accident is still under investigation, and it is not yet known what caused the driver of the car to collide with the truck. Tractor-trailer accidents are responsible for over 5,000 fatal accidents per year. Thankfully, there were no fatalities in this particular Missouri truck accident, however investigators will determine whether or not any liability on the part of the truck driver exists. Truck drivers are subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s rules and regulations, and tractor-trailer operators must follow these specific guidelines, especially when sharing the road with smaller vehicles.

If you have been injured in a Missouri tractor-trailer accident, and believe there was negligence on the part of the truck driver from fatigue or other safety violations, consider calling a truck accident personal injury attorney. An experienced Missouri personal injury truck lawyer can have experts reconstruct the truck accident to determine whether the truck driver was at fault. Side collision truck accidents commonly occur when a tractor-trailer fails to yield the right of way, resulting in an accident which may have violated Federal Motor Carrier Regulations. Whatever the cause of your truck accident in Missouri, be aware that oftentimes commercial trucking companies will do everything in their power to avoid paying out on a personal injury or wrongful death claim: if you want to ensure your rights are protected, contact a Missouri personal injury lawyer today.
