Valparaiso Woman Killed in Truck-Car Crash on U.S. 30
The driver of the truck and his passenger, who was asleep, were not injured in the accident.
According to the Post-Tribune, the big rig is owned by Old Dominion of Thomasville, North Carolina (NC).
This tragic wreck illustrates the damage that can be inflicted by large tractor trailers in accidents. When a tractor trailer driver fails to heed a red light, the ramifications, as seen here, can be deadly.
The family of the victim should speak with a trucking accident injury lawyer to consider their legal options. Simply because the at-fault driver sneezed does not prohibit the family from seeking damages through a wrongful death claim. Though, if the family takes legal action, they should be prepared for a team of defense lawyers representing the truck company to try and minimize and deflect liability.
