Truck Driver Charged After Chain-Reaction Crash on James River Bridge in Richmond, VA

The driver of a tractor-trailer is facing charges after a chain-reaction wreck that occurred on the James River Bridge on I-95 through Richmond, Virginia (VA). The semi driver was apparently following traffic too closely and, as a result, rear-ended a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria. The car then crashed into theback of a passenger van, which then crashed into a pickup truck.

Four people in the struck vehicles were taken to the hospital for examination. Two passengers in the Ford and two passengers in the van suffered injuries, according to WDBJ7.com,

It is always scary hearing about a tractor-trailer accident because of the significant amount of weight the trucks carry. 
The victims should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss their legal options. My Virginia truck crash victims' attorneys and I understand how complicated an accident can be when a tractor-trailer is involved. For example, we represented a client who got seriously injured when a car was hit by a MACK truck with a trailer and water tank. Our client’s leg was broken in two places, she suffered from depression as a result of the crash, and she was not able to return to her old job. The case went all the way to trial and we were able to secure a $650,000 jury verdict for our client.
