A man has been killed after crashing his vehicle into the back of a semi-tractor trailer in Bunt County late Tuesday.
According to police investigators, the fatal crash happened just shortly before midnight just outside of Royce city on Interstate 30 near County Road 2646 when the driver of a grease truck slammed into the back of the 18-wheeler.
The driver of the grease truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The two people that were inside the semi-tractor trailer were unhurt in the accident.
Accidents can be caused by any number of factors such as road conditions, driver experience, the consumption of alcohol or drugs, and even the lack of sleep can play a crucial role. Accidents involving 18-wheel trucks can be dangerous. Even when it’s another truck involved, the outcome can end up being no less tragic than when a big rig is involved in an accident with a smaller vehicle. Truck drivers train for many hours in order to know what to do and avoid potentially hazardous situations as much as possible. However, even in the best case scenarios and with experienced drivers, accidents can and do happen.
