Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-75 Kills Two

By Grant Law Office on December 6, 2013

On November 14, a disastrous chain-reaction accident involving a semi-truck took place on Interstate 75, resulting in the deaths of two people.

According to a report by, in the early afternoon, a 40-year-old truck driver was heading north on the highway past the Hickory Grove Road overpass when he failed to stop in time for traffic that was slowed due to construction.

His tractor trailer rammed into a BMW, forcing it into a white 2011 Chrysler Town and Country minivan followed by several other vehicles.

The BMW erupted in flames, killing the driver, a 47-year-old man.

The Chrysler’s passengers – a 71-year-old woman, her 72-year-old husband, and his 38-year-old son – were all taken to the hospital. The elderly mother could not be saved and was pronounced dead. The other two are expected to survive.

The truck driver who was at the root of this incident is also expected to survive.

Passengers in the other involved vehicles were either taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries or examined and treated at the scene.

There are many different explanations for how this tragic accident could’ve occurred. The truck driver may not have been attentive. The truck may have experienced mechanical failure. Certain parts in the truck may have been defective. In any case, the trucker, his company, and/or the manufacturer of the truck can be held liable for all damages that were incurred.
