Accidents involving a semi and a regular passenger vehicle can often result in serious injury or fatality to the victims. A recent incident in Louisiana between a semi and a pickup resulted in the death of one of the drivers. The life of a 58-year-old male from Thibodaux was tragically taken in the fatal accident.
The incident occurred at a local intersection when the driver of the semi -- a 48-year-old male -- was apparently attempting to make a left turn onto a highway, and a pickup struck his rig. The pickup supposedly caught on fire and the driver, unable to free himself from his vehicle, died in the fire. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the local coroner's office.
