Three semi-trucks crash in Clewiston

Archives, Trucking Accidents

The Florida Highway Patrol reported recently that a crash early one morning involving three semi-trucks on US-27 in Clewiston killed one man and injured another one.

 

It seems one trucker, stopped his semi to check his tire.  A second trucker, stopped to help.  A third driver, 44-year old truck driver, came along and could not stop fast enough to avoid a collision; he died at the scene.  The other driver, suffered minor injuries and went to a local hospital for treatment.

 

The first trucker was charged with unlawful stopping in the road.  Florida Highway Patrol investigated the accident and road for several hours.  I urge the trucker to consult with an experienced Truck Accident Attorney immediately.
