A truck, transporting several tons of garbage, overturned in Cherokee County, GA. The driver of the truck made a sharp left turn causing it to tip over onto a minivan that was at the intersection. Two-thirds of the van was crushed from the weight of the trash that was covering it. Both drivers were taken to the hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
Accidents involving tractor-trailers are some of the most destructive. It is obvious that their size is much larger than the typical non-commercial vehicle, but they also weigh more than thirty times the weight of a traditional passenger vehicle. Truck drivers may be fatigued, inexperienced, or reckless, which cause devastating accidents.
