Driver of box truck killed in collision with tractor-trailer

Trucks traveling on interstate highways often appear to be invulnerable to people who are driving sedans and SUVs. These trucks travel at high speeds, and their size makes them seem impervious to harm in a collision. Unfortunately, when trucks collide with other trucks, they yield to the same laws of physics that govern all traffic accidents. A recent accident on I-95 near Teaneck, New Jersey, shows how one large truck can seriously damage another large truck and cause fatal results.

According to police and news reports, a box truck owned by a firm based in New York slammed into the rear end of a tractor-trailer operated by ShopRite. When police arrived, the cab of the box truck was pinned under the rear end of the big rig. Firefighters from Hackensack and Teaneck were able to remove the driver from the box truck, but he had already died. Police said that the front of the box truck was crumpled and that the windshield was shattered.

Reporters were able to identify the owner of the box truck, and when the company's office was reached, an employee said that the driver of the box truck had only worked for the company for two months. Police have not yet provided an explanation of the cause of the accident, but the condition of the box truck appears to indicate that it crashed into the rear end of the big rig. The driver of the big rig was not injured.

Anyone who is injured or loses a loved one in a similar accident may wish to consult an attorney who is experienced in handling motor vehicle accident cases. Lawyers often retain private accident reconstruction experts to study the accident and identify the cause of the accident.
