Regardless of how safely you drive, no one can control the actions of other drivers, chance happenings of poor road conditions or driver distraction.

When a 50 ton big rig collides with a passenger vehicle, occupants of the vehicle have little chance of avoiding serious injuries. In October, a truck driver accident in Franklin resulted in three occupants of a car suffering serious traumatic head injuries after a semi-truck collided with the car. In November, a semi-truck rear-ended a car, resulting in the wrongful death of a 6-year-old boy due to the spinal injuries he sustained.  On January 25, an early morning car accident caused two cars to pull onto the side median. A semitrailer pulling a box trailer attempted to deviate from the path of the two vehicles and began to jackknife. The semi struck both cars and injured all persons involved in the wreck; the injured were taken to St. Mary Medical Center.

Reporting dangerous truck driver behavior is necessary to prevent future accidents. Federal highway regulations recommend that you keep an eye on a truck driver that enters loose gravel or road surface that may attempt to overcorrect their steering.
