Man Killed By Wheel

A 27-year-old man was killed this week after a wheel flew through the windshield of his car. He was traveling northbound on I-95 near Jacksonville, FL when a wheel from a truck traveling southbound bounced over the median and through the windshield. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety states that 9.3% of all traffic related deaths involved truck accidents. Although several accidents occur due to the negligence or recklessness of drivers, some accidents are caused by not properly maintaining the truck. Therefore, it is important to enlist the assistance of an attorney to investigate the claim and determine if another party is also responsible.
