Chain reaction truck crash injures 5 on Georgia road

Trucks keep America going, and nearly all Americans use something that came on a truck every day. Most motorists know that trucks are part of life on the road and take the proper precautions when driving near them. However, even highly aware drivers cannot always prevent a collision.

Five people were injured enough to require hospital care after a tractor-trailer began a chain reaction of collisions on Georgia Route 49 in Jones County. The accident happened in the late morning of Oct. 30 when several drivers were stopped at a highway construction site.

The truck driver reportedly did not see the site over a hill and was unable to stop in time to prevent striking a pickup truck. The pickup flipped over after striking other vehicles. Bystanders helped the occupants of the vehicle out before injuries got worse.

A responding sheriff's deputy cautioned drivers about slowing down near a construction zone in case a quick halt is required. "It really makes a difference in your ability to stop," he said.

The five injuries in this incident were not considered to be life-threatening. However, victims of truck accidents often suffer severe and long-term injuries. Sadly, too many truck accident-related injuries are fatal.

Victims and families may require financial assistance, including reimbursement for medical expenses and compensation for the emotional toll. An experienced Georgia truck accident attorney can review the circumstances that led to the crash and work to seek the compensation that victims and their families need and deserve. No one should go through the aftermath of a truck accident without help.
