That, however, doesn't diminish the fact that truck accidents can cause major damage to property, injuries to drivers and even death.

In an overnight crash, an 18-wheeler heading south crashed through the barrier separating southbound and northbound lanes. While on the other side of the road, it hit another 18-wheeler and then a Ford pickup. The first 18-wheeler caught fire and the driver was airlifted to the hospital. Five people, including two children, from the pickup were hospitalized. The driver of the second truck was stuck in his cab and rescue personnel had to free him. He too was flown to the hospital. An investigation is ongoing to determine why the driver of the first truck drove through the barrier and onto the other side of the road.
