Cleveland, OH (October 4, 2021) – On Monday, October 4, a crash involving a semi-truck left a driver seriously injured in Cleveland.
The accident reportedly occurred on Interstate 90 near E. 72nd Street. Cleveland firefighters were sent to the scene at around 3:41 a.m. that morning. A stalled semi was reportedly parked on the right side of the highway.
A vehicle reportedly hit the 18-wheeler. The impact caused the car to enter the high-speed lane. A 27-year-old female driver was hospitalized in serious condition due to the accident.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is being managed by local law enforcement officials.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Trucking Accidents in Ohio
Around 67% of fatal semi-truck incidents in 2019 included people in personal vehicles. Almost a quarter of fatal 18-wheeler accidents involve truckers who had received a speeding ticket before the collision. Every year, about 500,000 transportation accidents are reported. These accidents claim the lives of thousands of individuals. Every 15 seconds, someone is killed or badly injured in a tractor-trailer or semi-truck collision.
Large semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injuries in the event of a collision with a passenger vehicle. Truck-driver inexperience is a leading cause of deadly commercial vehicle accidents as companies are trying to fill positions due to a shortage of drivers. This act of negligence contributes to serious crashes involving 18-wheelers and commercial vehicles. When the negligence of another driver results in a crash, injured victims should consult with a Cleveland trucking injury lawyer in order to recover lost compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim.
