Electrical worker Justin "Brent" Carrick wound up trapped under an 80,000 pound slab of concrete after a truck crash on I-85 near Poplar Tent Road in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (NC), when the truck he was driving hit the back of a wide-load trailer carrying the slab.

Surprisingly, Carrc suffered only a broken femur, but police sad bith he and and one of the oter trucers will be ticketed for traffic violations that led to the chain-reaction accident. There is no immediate evidence that the concrete slab was an unsecured load. If that turns out to the caes, Carrick might have grounds to bring a lawsuit against the owner of the truck he hit.

The crash was just the latest in a long series of accidents involving commercial trucks in North Carolina during 2011.  In fact, the Tar Heel State has the sixth worst record in the country for tractor-trailer crashes.

As experienced truck accident injury attorneys with offices in North Carolina, we report on far too many accidents involving semis and 18-wheelers. Recently, for instance, we noted that five people were killed and 10 were injured when a tractor-trailer hit a line of eight vehicles near Fletcher, NC.
