Fatal accident on U. S. 27

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Recently a trucker stopped his semi-truck in a northbound lane on Highway U.S. 27 in Clewiston, Florida.  The semi flipped on its side.  A witness said it sounded like a bomb going off.  Another trucker, stopped in front of the truck to see if he could help.

 

Another driver crashed directly into the disabled truck tearing it completely apart; he was dead at the scene.  I feel badly for this man’s family.

Both trucks stopped on the Highway; it is unclear why they did not pull completely off the road.
