Semi Driver Falls Asleep at the Wheel and Injures Six

Semi truck accidents are some of the most fatal, and six people are lucky to be alive following a tragic car accident, which happened in Chicago. Furthermore, six people were injured after the driver of a semi truck fell asleep at the wheel, and plowed into 13 vehicles that were waiting on the Stevenson Expressway.

In addition, the semi truck accident happened near 1st Avenue near Chicago, Illinois near a construction zone early Friday morning. Luckily none of the people involved in the car crashes suffered life-threatening injuries, and all are expected to survive. One of the people involved in the semi truck accident was, Terry Nero, and she says she’s lucky to be alive.

Nero was on her way to work when she was struck by the semi. As a result, Nero has suffered a broken neck and clavicle, but can still walk although she’s still in pain. Her husband recalled receiving the call that she Terry was involved in a semi truck accident and feared she was dead after finding out her car was ejected into the air. Thus far no charges or citations have been issued to the driver of the semi, yet an investigation is pending.
