A fatal tractor-trailer crash occurred in Pocono Township, Pennsylvania on Sunday morning. The collision took place between a car and a tractor-trailer on Interstate 80 just before 5 am. Five victims of the fatal tractor-trailer crash sustained numerous personal injuries while another victim succumbed to fatal injuries. The cause of the accident is unknown.
Due to the size and girth of a tractor-trailer, when a car or smaller vehicle engages in a collision with one, the results could be catastrophic. Occupants of both vehicles may be in danger of sustaining a range of injuries as well as potential fatalities. In some cases, the tractor-trailer operator may not be properly trained or may be violating traffic laws, which could lead to a serious accident.
