Dump Truck Driver Loses Control and Hits Multiple Vehicles
A Massachusetts dump truck driver lost control of the commercial truck he was driving at on June 13. The driver was a 74-year-old man who is also the owner of the dump truck.
The police report says that the older driver of the dump truck was driving through Cohasset, Massachusetts when he lost control of the dump truck. The man then went onto the sidewalk and hit a large trash container before swerving into oncoming traffic and colliding with an SUV and three parked cars.
At the moment, the truck accident is under investigation by the Cohasset Police. The police are looking into possible mechanical failures that could have caused the accident; no citations have been issued until the police know how the accident happened. In order to help them find out what exactly happened, an accident reconstruction specialist was brought in to help them find the cause of the accident and determine how so much property was damaged.
In a very lucky aspect of the truck accident, no pedestrians were injured when the truck went onto the sidewalk and then smashed the parked cars. The driver of SUV was also uninjured after the truck accident.
Truck accidents can cause incredibly serious car and bodily damage. If you or your loved one has been injured by a truck accident, please contact an experienced truck accident attorney to schedule an initial case evaluation.
