A four vehicle accident Tuesday morning in Danville, Kentucky has sent one person to the hospital. The Accident happened shortly before 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Ky. 2168 and Ky. 34. The accident occurred as a semi truck was heading east on Ky. 2168 when it hit two cars which then hit a pickup truck. The driver of the semi truck told police that the sun was in his eyes and he could not see the red light.
Accidents involving semi truck have extra ordinary legal complications, and when persons are injured in semi truck accidents they need to obtain legal counsel quickly in order to preserve important evidence such as trucking logs and ledgers, which under federal laws can be destroyed after a period of time. Evidence, such as trucking lodgers, can be helpful in establishing whether drivers were already breaking the law by traveling too great of a distance or for too long.
Persons injured in semi truck accidents are entitled to legal compensation from these type of serious accidents.
