A Missouri trucking accident injured a Missouri truck driver when he slammed into nine head of cattle on the I-70 on May 17, 2011, just after midnight. The Missouri 18 wheeler accident occurred in Russell County, Kansas on I-70 near the Dorrance exit.
Truck driver John Kenneth Arthurs II, 50, from Independence, Missouri was injured in the single vehicle accident. Arthurs drove a 2004 International 18 wheeler with two Strick trailers, one from 2005 and another from 2006. Arthurs drove the International 18 wheeler on westbound I-70 and crashed into nine head of cattle. Arthurs was injured in the accident. He was taken to the Russell Regional Hospital in Kansas. The semi-trailer was towed from the scene of the accident. The status of the cattle was not reported. The truck driver had appropriate insurance.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires motor to carry public liability insurance. A regulation public liability insurance policy must cover the bodily injury, the property damage, and the environmental restoration that could result from a collision. The Missouri motor carrier regulation requiring public liability insurance is broadly applied. Motor carriers that operate in interstate commerce, intrastate commerce, or foreign commerce are within the confines of the regulation. The FMCSA regulations mandate strict compliance with insurance requirements for truckers of all kinds.
FMCSA motor carrier regulations are promulgated to prevent the serious injury and extensive property damage that may be caused by Missouri truck accidents. Other vehicles sustain most of the property damage caused by trucking accidents. However, truck accidents may cause extensive damage to other nearby property. 18 wheeler trucks are humongous vehicles that can weigh nearly 80,000 pounds. If an 18 wheeler crashes into valuable property like livestock, the property owner may suffer a dramatic loss.
Since the FMCSA requires motor carriers to obtain public liability insurance covering property damage, an insurance company is likely to compensate a property owner whose possessions have been damaged by a Missouri truck accident. However, insurance companies may search for reasons to avoid covering a claim. Property owners who have suffered loss because of Missouri 18 wheeler accidents should have knowledgeable legal representation to protect their legal right to compensation.
