Cellphone Use Blamed for Truck Accident

A truck driver "distracted" by his cellphone lost control of his rig and ran off the road north of Denver, Colorado this past Wednesday. The semi-truck was hauling a double-trailer with the rear trailer empty and the lead trailer carrying assorted items including low-level radiation medical supplies.

While the 42-year-old driver was not injured, the accident wrapped the rig around a sign pole on I-76 and spilled the hauled load all over the highway. Debris from the accident hit an SUV another semi-truck and a sedan. The accident occurred during the rush hour commute and closed the highway down to two lanes for hours.

Because of the medical supplies, the Colorado State Patrol called in the haz-mat team.

While the accident is still under investigation, authorities say it could have been a lot worse. No one was killed, but it once again adds to the evidence that cellphones and driving are not a good combination.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, please contact an experienced truck accident attorney in your area.
