The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that last year, transportation accidents were the leading cause of workplace deaths, accounting for roughly 41 percent of all on-the-job fatalities. A little more than half of those incidents occurred on the roadway. The Ohio Truck Accident Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller& McCarthy explain these collisions are often deadly because of the forces exerted in the crashes due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved.
A crash that occurred in Mt. Orab, Ohio, earlier this week highlights just how deadly a collision involving a commercial truck can be. According to an article from FOX 19 News, the incident happened at approximately 10:15 a.m. Tuesday morning, at the corner of U.S. Highway 68 and Greenbush Road.
Reports indicate that a tire recycling truck was traveling along the highway when the driver suddenly veered the vehicle into the oncoming lane of traffic and into the path of a tractor-trailer. The two vehicles collided, claiming the lives of both drivers involved in the crash.
Investigators continue to look into what contributing factors may have played a part in causing the crash.
The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy are aware of how devastating it can be to lose a loved one to an accident. That’s why the firm would like to send their deepest condolences to the family of the men who were killed in this most recent tragic accident.
