When operating a semi-truck, a truck driver has a responsibility to exercise caution behind the wheel. This is critical because trucks are large and can cause immense damage in a split second if their drivers are behaving negligently. Unfortunately, one person died and another individual was injured in a recent semi-truck accident in Connecticut.
A young boy sadly passed away following a vehicle crash involving a box truck in Connecticut. It’s understandable for the boy’s parents and other family members are likely heartbroken. The trucking accident occurred when the boy was riding his bike on a recent Thursday afternoon, according to authorities.
We typically do everything in our power to protect our children, which can make a car accident involving a child one of the most devastating feelings a person can experience. Because of the size and weight of tractor trailers, truck accidents in Connecticut can cause severe and serious injuries to those involved. At the end of August, a head on collision between a tractor trailer and van left a woman and three children with what could be severe physical and emotional damage.
