Truck Accident Shuts Down Overpass

The trailer on a semi truck carrying an 80-ton locomotive came unattached on Tuesday in Ohio, causing major damage to an overpass, and closing sections of I-74 and I-275. The Ohio Department of Transportation stated that repairs may take three months and forcing Indiana-to-Ohio commuters to find a detour due to the closure of State Route 1.

Witnesses state that when the trailer became unattached, it hit the pillars of the overpass. The locomotive then came off the trailer, hitting two more support columns. A support beam then fell on top of the locomotive.

No one was injured in the accident, but investigators are still looking into why the trailer came off the truck pulling it. The repairs are estimated between $500,000 to $600,000 by ODOT, and the wildly high number of $50 million estimated by an investigator looking into the accident.

We worry about semis shifting lanes and knocking us off roads, or high-speed losses of control. How often do we worry about semis pulling locomotives?

If you have been involved in an accident involving a semi, or perhaps a train, or both, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
