Lane change cited as cause for highway crash

Drivers in Ohio have likely been warned about the dangers of accidents involving large trucks. Florida authorities say that a fatal collision on Interstate 75 near Gainesville was caused by a truck driver who moved out of the right lane. While doing so, the truck collided with a 2007 Honda, which sent both vehicles through a median and into southbound lanes of traffic.

Truck accidents and how they differ from car crashes

There are several obvious and not-so-obvious differences between truck crashes and car accidents that Ohio residents should keep in mind. The severity of vehicle damage and injuries is the first. The weight of commercial trucks causes a greater impact, leaving most passenger vehicles undrivable. Occupants of the latter may be left with head trauma and spine injuries and may require rehabilitative care and short- or long-term disability leave.
