Truck Accidents Continued to Plague I-10
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 06, 2013 in Auto Accidents
Known for heavy trucking traffic, Arizona motorists are typically accustom to sharing the roads and highways with 18 wheelers, semi-trucks, and all kinds of big rigs. The typical size and weight of these tractor-trailers places all Arizona drivers at risk of catastrophic injuries in the event of a collision. In the last week, Interstate 10, one of Arizonas most popular and heavily trafficked highways, has sustained three serious semi-truck accidents.
Arizona Department of Public Safety has done their best to clean up the accident spills in order to prevent even further damage. From fuel spills to fires, these big rig traffic crashes have raised serious concerns for many motorists throughout the state. The Phoenix metropolitan area is encouraged to exercise extreme caution while traveling along I-10, especially when riding near any type of big rig.
It is common knowledge that almost every trucking accident leaves behind a wake of devastation. These vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and must share the roads with much smaller vehicles.
