Vehicle collides with semi-truck, killing 1

Drivers in Lacrosse, Wisconsin face a number of distractions every day. Many of them are caused by the drivers themselves such as talking on the phone, texting, fiddling with the radio, applying makeup and eating while driving. Some distractions are those things that are outside of the car and can take the driver’s attention off the road like billboards, scenery and even other drivers. In order to operate a vehicle safely, it is important for drivers to minimize distractions as much as possible and ensure that their full attention is on the road.

A driver who may or may not have been distracted recently drifted from his lane and crashed head-on into a semi-truck. The truck accident occurred in Dodge County on Highway 68 when the 29-year-old driver was navigating a curve in the road and ended up crossing over the center line. The impact sent the semi-truck off the road and into a field where it caught on fire. The truck driver was able to get out of the semi, but the truck was destroyed in the fire.

The driver of the vehicle that crossed the center line died at the scene. His 30-year-old passenger sustained serious to critical injuries. There were also two young children in the car who sustained injuries that were non-life-threatening.

Those that were involved in this accident may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney. Doing so may help them protect their interests and may ensure that they get the proper compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills and damages done to their vehicles.
