Driverless Tractor Trailer Crosses 10 Lanes of Traffic, Crashes into Business

According to the United States Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety, at least 77,000 of the approximately 141,000 truck crashes in 2011 could be blamed on driver error. If you are the victim of a truck accident it is important to have an experienced truck accident attorney in Clayton County.

A big rig carrying a load of beer crashed into a Georgia business while the truck's driver was inside a gas station seeking directions.

According to the driver, he looked up while in the gas station and saw his 18-wheeler crossing 10 lanes of traffic in the early morning accident. The driver attempted to jump into the cab to stop the truck but was unable to do so before it crashed into the side of a furniture liquidation store. Nobody was injured in the accident as there was little traffic so early in the morning. The accident cost the driver one-third of his beer at an estimated cost of $3,000 and caused over $200,000 in damage to the store.
