Man In Critical Condition After Colliding With Garbage Truck
It’s never a good idea to crash into a truck, but some trucks are worse than others. The heavier they are, the harder they’ll hit. Sanitation trucks are among the heaviest vehicles on the road. It takes quite a lot of force to damage them, which means that when a car hits one the car is in a lot of trouble.
Two days ago, according to UpNewsInfo.com, a young mag collided with a Dallas sanitation truck that was stopped at 1300 N. Jim Miller Road and Lake June Road.
The black truck he was driving hit the garbage truck as he was trying to pass on the right. He has been taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police are unsure about the exact cause of the accident and are investigating.
Never try to beat a commercial truck for space. The few seconds you might gain from passing them aren’t worth the risk of losing your vehicle, possible life-long injury, and possible death for you and your passengers. Giving truck spaces keeps you safe and it keeps them safe.
If you are following a truck, stay back far enough so that you can see their mirrors. If you can see their mirrors, they can see you. Never try to pass a truck on the right either. They may have to turn from one lane over and that could crush your vehicle.
