Car collides with semi-truck, injuring 2 in Wisconsin

Generally speaking, when a regular-sized passenger car goes up against a semi-truck in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, the car usually is the one that receives the most damage. Depending on the type of crash, occupants of the car are often severely injured. This is why it is so important for drivers to be aware of tractor trailers and give them plenty of room on the roadways.

An elderly couple that was involved in a serious tractor trailer accident in Waupaca County, Wisconsin recently miraculously lived to tell about. The couple was driving along Highway 22/54 when for some unknown reason they crossed the centerline and ran head-on into a semi-truck driving in the opposite direction. The collision caused both vehicles to end up in a ditch near the road. Although the semi-truck’s 45-year-old driver noticed the car coming at him, he could evidently not avoid the crash. Authorities said that they were alerted to the fact that the couple’s car was swerving across the centerline before the accident took place.

The truck driver was uninjured in the accident, but the elderly couple sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Although authorities are still conducting their investigation into the cause of the accident, those involved may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney regarding their right to compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills and damages done to their vehicles. Doing so may be able to help them receive the proper amount to which they are entitled.
