When large trucks become out of control they have the potential to do infinite damages. As a Seattle trucking accident attorney, I am aware of the demand that big commercial trucks meet for consumers of our society and that they can be a hassle for other commuters on the road. According to King 5 News, around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning, a truck driver was killed when his tanker flipped over while taking a turn on Interstate 405 at Bellevue. The truck was traveling up the ramp from eastbound Interstate 90 to southbound I-405 when it appeared that the driver made a sharp right turn and lost control. This caused the truck to roll down onto its side. The 56 year old truck driver was killed instantly. Officials are still investigating the scene but it has been determined that the truck was not carrying any hazardous materials.
Big trucks are a part of every day traffic and should be approached with caution. The website of TruckAccidents.org has reported that about 98 percent of all semi truck accidents result in at least one death due to their big size and weight. Commercial trucks are often in accidents due to the fault of other drivers or the fatigue of its driver. In addition, roughly 130,000 people are injured each year in total.
