Rock Hill, SC Truck Accident Injures 2 on I-77
Rock Hill, SC -- March 25, 2020, two people were injured following a crash where a semi-truck and a car collided along Interstate 77.
Investigators with the Rock Hill Police Department reported that the crash happened Wednesday afternoon at the Dave Lyle Boulevard off-ramp.
Authorities didn't release many details about the crash. They said that a Chevy Sonic and a semi-truck were both on the northbound exit ramp. They somehow crossed paths and collided on the ramp.
As a result, two people in the Chevy were taken to an area hospital. One of them had to be airlifted. The truck driver wasn't hurt.
Additional details are currently unavailable.
Right now there isn't much information to go on. Whenever that happens, people tend to think it's best to wait for police to finish their reports. I try to discourage this way of thinking. While it's prudent to want all the facts, police reports are rarely the best way to get them. I don't mean to disparage the efforts of police, but the reality is many departments are underfunded, overworked, and have countless priorities to attend to. As a result, traffic wrecks often slip through the cracks, and their reports might not be as thorough as they need to be.
That's why I always encourage victims and families to seek out independent accident reconstructionists. They can dedicate their time to the crash, they have years of industry experience, and they have state-of-the-art tools to properly gather and preserve even the most subtle of information. Whether victims can hold someone accountable for their injuries or they just get some answers, it's important that investigations be thorough so that no important details are lost.
