Tractor Trailer Wheel Kills Interstate Worker

A woman was killed recently on an interstate in Nebraska after being hit by a wheel that flew off a passing tractor trailer. The woman was working on the interstate when the tractor trailer passed by. Another worker was also injured and was taken to the hospital; at the time of this writing, he is in serious condition with head and back injuries. Although two wheels came off the trailer, the driver was unaware of the problem and continued driving. The truck driver didn’t become aware of the missing wheels even after he stopped to dump the truck’s load. Workers noticed the missing wheels as the tractor drove by and radioed the driver to pull over.

When Nebraska state troopers inspected the rig, 16 violations were found. The negligence of this driver caused the death of one and seriously injured another. Had the driver of this rig performed his job properly, a life could have been saved and the serious injuries of another could have been prevented. Even when truck accidents don't involve an actual collision, they can be deadly.

Tractor trailer/truck accidents are often serious and can result in wrongful death or a serious injury, as it did in this case. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a tractor trailer accident, please contact an experienced truck accident attorney in your area today to schedule a confidential, no-cost consultation.
