Woman Killed In Kansas Tractor-Trailer Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Kansas woman is dead after a
tractor-trailer accident on a Kansas highway. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a tractor-trailer
struck the 50-year-old woman’s sports utility vehicle on Wednesday
on the Kansas Turnpike near Andover. According to a Patrol Lieutenant,
the woman had stopped on the side of the highway two hours before the
fatal accident about 10 miles north of the Matfield Green service area.
The patrol officer said she was out of fuel, and he helped the woman by
giving her 2 gallons of gas.
The woman then stopped again for an unknown reason in the right-hand lane
on the Kansas Turnpike. The tractor-trailer did not see her vehicle and
crashed into her SUV. The Kansas Highway Patrol reports the woman died
at the scene of the crash, and the truck driver was unharmed. Authorities
say they will do an investigation into the accident.
Motorists who are involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer have an
increased likelihood of serious injuries or even death due to the sheer
size of an 18-wheeler. In many truck accidents, the fault of a sleepy
truck driver or a negligent trucking company is responsible for your accident.
If you have been a victim or have lost someone you love in a tractor-trailer
accident, it is in your best interest to seek legal support immediately.
