The scene that follows a tractor-trailer crash can be chaotic. Frequently, people injured in a truck accident require emergency care. At the same time, emergency crews are busy cleaning up the scene and law enforcement officials are investigating what happened and ensuring that they identify who may have been responsible. This situation is common everywhere, including in North Carolina.
Truck accidents, whether they occur in North Carolina or anywhere else in the nation, can be quite disastrous. A truck accident can injure or kill more people simply because of the truck's sheer size. In North Carolina, tractor-trailer and railroad accidents have, unfortunately, become far too common. Although the U.S. has rolled out a high-tech system to stop train-tractor crashes, it may still take five more years for that system to be implemented.
