Tractor Trailers Cause Fatal Accident In Brevard County

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Due to shear size and power, relative to most standard automobiles, compact automobiles, and even sport utility vehicles, collisions with tractor trailers can often be fatal. On only one day this week there were two fatal accicents on Interstate 95 in Brevard County. The accidents were only two miles apart, and one involved tractor trailers.

When you’re on the road, pay special attention to tractor trailers and drive defensively. Many truckers follow the rules, but many don’t and drive too many hours at a time, are fatigued, and sometimes even take prescription or over the counter medications or supplements to stay awake. As a result, they drive distracted and cause serious truck accidents that often prove fatal.
