According to the Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Analysis Division, 31 percent of large truck accidents in 2009 were caused by truck driver-related factors including speeding, distracted driving and failing to maintain the proper lane. If you are the victim of a truck accident it is important to have an experienced truck accident attorney in Clayton County who can get the proper compensation.
A FedEx truck caused I-85 to close for nearly four hours after it collided with a police cruiser that was making a traffic stop. The accident trapped the FedEx driver inside his truck for nearly two hours before he was extracted and airlifted to the hospital. The officer was not inside his cruiser at the time of the accident but was injured by flying debris.
