Baby Dies in Trucking Accident
When a vehicle and a semi-truck collide, it almost never ends well for the people in the vehicle. A semi-truck is so big and so heavy that anything it collides with doesn’t stand a chance. Often, the driver of the 18-wheeler is unharmed, while the passengers of the other vehicle often face life threatening injuries or death.
In Montgomery County, Texas, a terrible tragedy involving an 18-wheeler has left one family mourning a particularly difficult loss. A 9 month old baby was the victim in a collision involving an SUV and a semi truck. The big rig was parked illegally in a moving lane of traffic, attempting to make a delivery to a nearby business. The victim’s mother was driving, and crashed into the semi truck. The woman and her 3 year old child, who was also in the vehicle, were taken to the hospital for injuries, while tragically, the baby, who had been properly restrained in a car seat, died at the time of impact. The semi truck driver was not injured.
