A father and son were involved in a tragic accident last week when a semi truck them while crossing the street.
The 6-year-old boy sustained fatal injuries, while his father was treated in critical condition at a local hospital. According to Police reports, there were no stop signs, stoplights, or traffic control at the intersection, but no information was released on why the trucker failed to stop. So far, he has only been cited for striking a pedestrian.
When a truck driver is negligent, the effects are often deadly. If you were hurt in a semi truck accident due to the negligent or reckless driving, you may have a legal claim for compensation.
