One thing any car accident lawyer in Georgia will tell you is that tractor trailer accidents are some of the most dangerous accidents of all. Usually, it’s the person in the passenger vehicle that suffers the most serious injuries. This was the case this week when 2 people in a car were killed in a tractor trailer crash in Valdosta.
The accident happened on the Southbound side of Interstate-75. A tractor trailer collided with a car and the car caught fire. Both of the occupants of the car died at the scene. The fire department came to the scene and tried to put the fire out. They did a great job of it but, sadly, it was too little too late for the people inside the car.
The driver of the tractor trailer managed to walk away from the accident with no injuries. This is usually how it happens. The truck driver is protected by a giant, powerful machine. The person in the passenger vehicle is the one who suffers the brunt of the injuries.
The identities of the people killed in the crash have been made, however their family have not yet been notified. This is why the names of the two occupants haven’t been released. Nor has the cause of the crash been declared. The authorities say the investigation is still ongoing.
