Marine Killed in Albany Motorcycle Tractor Trailer Collision

By Grant Law Office on July 15, 2013

According to a report on WALB News 10, a Marine Sergeant, 26, was riding his motorcycle in Albany on June 30 when he was killed in a collision with a tractor trailer on Cordele Road. He was based in the Marine Corps Logistics Base and worked with the Command Maintenance Assistance Team.

The Albany Marine was traveling north when he encountered a truck going the other way and turning left into a truck stop. He couldn’t stop in time and ran into the passenger side of the large truck. He was taken to the hospital, where he passed away.

At the time of his death, charges were still pending, and the investigation of the crash site was not concluded.

The deceased toured Afghanistan from December 2009 through April 2010. He was a highly accomplished service member. His many decorations include the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terror Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the NATO – International Security Assistance Force Afghanistan Medal, the Presidential Unit Citation – Navy, two Good Conduct Medals, the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, a Certificate of Appreciation, Meritorious Mast, and three Letters of Appreciation.

Every year, many good people are lost or injured due to truck accidents. Due to their sheer size and weight, trucks often bring about severe consequences when involved in an accident. Victims should know the circumstances surrounding their cases in order to get the help they need for physical, mental, and financial recovery. If the accident occurred due to driver error, negligence, or mechanical failure, the truck driver or the associated company can be held liable for any and all damages.
