Illinois man killed in fatal truck accident

Comments Off

An accident in Boone County, Indiana has left an Illinois man dead. The man was killed after he slowed for traffic which was backed due up to an accident ahead. A tractor-trailer was behind him and failed to slow with traffic and rear ended him.

The impact caused his vehicle to leave the road and strike a concrete median, killing him.

Accidents such as this demonstrate the tremendous power of tractor-trailers. Fully loaded, they can weigh several tons. When they are driven at high speeds or fail to slow as needed for traffic conditions ahead, tragic accidents such as this are a predictable result.
