18-wheeler accident kills 1, injures 2 in Upstate SC

Posted on Jun 15, 2017

Earlier this week, two tractor trailer trucks were in an auto accident that injured two people and killed one.

One of the 18-wheelers had a tire blow out, causing the driver to lose control of his truck, cross over the median and hit another tractor trailer truck head-on before bursting into flames.

It took several hours for firefighters to control the flames and the southbound lanes of I-85 are still closed.

Tractor trailer truck accidents are often some of the scariest and deadliest accidents on the road. Whether you are in a small car or large SUV, an 18-wheeler can cause devastating injuries.

If you are seriously injured in an accident, you may need an auto accident attorney to help you get the benefits you need. Choose a lawyer that has experience in that area of practice, has been vetted by members of the community and past clients, and has a proven record of successful claims settled.
