A couple was killed when a tractor-trailer rear-ended their vehicle causing a chain reaction crash.
The couple was driving to their wedding at the time of the accident, according to police. When the tractor-trailer was unable to slow down for traffic, it slammed into the couple’s car. Ultimately, three other tractor-trailers were involved in the accident. Two of those semis, along with the couple’s vehicle, caught fire closing the highway for nearly 12 hours. The accident remains under investigation.
Due to the size and weight of a tractor-trailer versus a passenger vehicle, when an accident occurs the results can be catastrophic. Those who have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one should seek legal counsel as soon as possible to preserve evidence and understand his/her rights.
