The wreck illustrates the dangers of distracted driving, especially for operators of large commercial trucks. No phone call is important enough to risk causing injury or death to yourself or those around you.

All of the injured victims are expected to recover fully. Still, the accident victims should contact a North Carolina truck accident attorney to discuss the incident. Because a professional trucker is at fault, the company the driver was working for could also potentially be held liable for injuries and damage.
