Truck accident in Georgia kills 3

Three people died following a tragic accident involving a diesel truck, according to local sources. The Peach County Emergency Management Agency in Fort Valley confirmed the truck accident that killed both the truck driver and two people in a passenger vehicle. The precise cause of the Georgia accident is still under investigation. 

Locals request changes after fatal truck accident

In many communities, local residents know exactly where dangerous intersections and roads are located. These are areas where traffic accidents happen frequently and often are a source of contention between the people who have to often utilize them and transportation officials. This is what some residents in Georgia say tied into a recent fatal truck accident that has resulted in criminal charges for the driver that authorities say is responsible.

Truck accident involving multiple tractor-trailers kills one

Driving among multiple tractor-trailers can be daunting for many drivers. If a truck driver makes even a small mistake, the results could be disastrous. Georgia State Patrol responded to a truck accident last week involving multiple tractor-trailers and a much smaller passenger vehicle. The crash resulted in several injuries as well as the death of one of the drivers. 

Driver charged after truck accident

Traffic accidents are, unfortunately, unavoidable on major roadways like highways or interstates. These accidents can range from minor fender-benders with no injuries to multiple-car pileups that result in severe injuries or deaths. A truck accident is especially likely to result in injury or death because of the size of the vehicle involved. Several months ago, one such accident occurred in Georgia, and one of the drivers who was seriously injured in the crash recently passed away. As a result, charges have been filed against the truck driver involved. 

2 injured in truck accident

Cell phones and other electronic devices are the causes of multiple car accidents in Georgia and across the nation every day. Often, these accidents occur on major roadways and interstates. However, residents of Milton were recently reminded that these crashes can occur in residential areas as well when a truck accident left two people injured.

Truck accident causes one death and multiple injuries

It can sometimes be unnerving for Georgia drivers to navigate the roadways with large commercial trucks. Often, drivers will move over to the next lane when they see one pulled over to the side of the road in order to prevent a truck accident. Unfortunately, drivers are not always able to move over, or they are otherwise distracted, and accidents still occur. 

1 killed and 1 injured in truck accident

Georgia drivers know that driving next to a semi-truck can be unnerving. They are easily the largest vehicles on the road, and they have notoriously large blind spots. Therefore, the drivers of these trucks have to be even more vigilant about following driving laws. Unfortunately, not all truck drivers adhere to these laws, and the result is too often a fatal truck accident

FMCSA proposes rules making it easier to secure commercial driver's license

On most days, news of a proposed rule being published in the Federal Register, the legal newspaper run by the National Archives and Records Administration, would fail to generate any real coverage or discussion. That's because most proposed rules, while important, are nevertheless written in an arcane style and/or cover an area of little interest to the general public.

FMCSA: Fatal truck crashes increase by 8 percent in 2015

When the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released its estimates for the number of traffic fatalities during the first 9 months of 2016 earlier this year, people were understandably concerned. That's because it projected that as many as 27,875 people lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents versus 25,808 during the same timeframe in 2015, an 8 percent increase.

Senate subcommittee: More must be done to address trucking safety

It would perhaps be the understatement of the century to say that there has been no shortage of action -- and controversy -- on Capitol Hill over the course of the last two months. Indeed, from healthcare and immigration to the federal budget and Supreme Court vacancy, there has been no respite in either the halls of Congress or the Oval Office.
