Accidents involving tractor-trailers can have tragic results, for both the semi operator and any occupants in the other vehicle. Recently in North Dakota, a semi driver was killed and a woman was injured in a terrible accident on a local highway. Car accidents like this one certainly bring attention to the dangers truck drivers face on the road every day and the need to be aware and cautious around these massive trucks.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the 45-year-old driver of a semi was killed after his vehicle collided with a pickup truck in Keene. The driver of the pickup, a 50-year-old female, was apparently attempting to make a left-hand turn in front of the semi when the accident occurred. The impact of the collision caused the tractor-trailer to roll onto the driver's side before coming to rest in a ditch.
