Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident on I-75 in Monroe County
It's not entirely clear what all happened here or whether or not any of the victims had a reasonable chance to avoid the collisions. But what I can say from experience is that commercial vehicle wrecks can be incredibly complex. A crash involving four trucks is only going to be more significantly challenging without the right tools and experience. Folks often take for granted that authorities have all of that covered, but the reality is this sort of chaotic accident is usually beyond their means. That's why it's important people learn about those potential shortcomings and how to make up for them with allies of their own.
