Tampa, FL (July 7, 2022) – A multi-vehicle crash in Tampa left multiple people injured on Wednesday night, July 6. The accident was reported at around 7:25 p.m. on Interstate 75 near Exit 404.
The Tampa man operating a tractor-trailer failed to notice another commercial truck. The trucker hit the rear of the other rig which was operated by a 30-year-old man from Texas. The Tampa man immediately steered to the left, and the trailer overturned onto a Chevrolet pickup truck driven by a 37-year-old Arcadia man.
The Tampa man and five occupants of the pickup were hurt and transported to a local hospital for treatment.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Tractor-Trailer Crashes in Florida
In the US, there are about 500,000 commercial vehicle collisions annually. These accidents result in the murder of thousands of people each year. In 2019, more than 67 percent of fatal truck accidents involved a passenger automobile. If a passenger car collides with a heavy truck, the injuries to the passengers could be fatal or have a profound effect on their quality of life. Long-haul truckers are more inclined to act recklessly and recklessly.
Numerous tragic car accidents across the nation, including right here in Tampa, Florida, are caused by semi-trucks. The statistics clearly demonstrate how fatal trucking accidents are in Tampa, especially when they include smaller passenger vehicles. Despite the fact that rig operators are expected to put safety first, even the most seasoned trucker can make a critical mistake on the road that leads to a catastrophic 18-wheeler accident.
