Roger Walters, 48, was killed Wednesday when the pickup truck he was riding in was slammed into by a larger box truck on Route 837 in Union Township, Pennsylvania.
According to a WPXI report, a box truck driven by an unidentified driver crashed into two pickup trucks, including Walters’, in the northbound lane of Route 837. Walters was thrown from his pickup and pronounced dead at the scene.
No word has been released on the status of the box truck driver or the other pickup driver.
Local authorities are sill investigating the crash to determine exactly what happened and why the driver of the box truck may have lost control.
Box trucks are the type of moving trucks rented out by companies like Uhaul among others. They are smaller than a tractor trailer, but since they are larger that most other passenger vehicles, they can cause serious damage or injury in a crash.
Authorities will likely look into any potential mechanical problems with the truck as well as the state of the driver. If they find that negligence on the part of the driver or the box truck company was to blame for the accident, Walters’ family may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim and recover damages that can be used to cover funeral costs and other expenses. Further investigation by a truck accident attorney will be needed to sort out the legal issues involved with any potential claims.
