Attempting to drive across lanes of a highway and enter a median gap in a large and bulky truck can be arduous and difficult with oncoming traffic fast approaching. A truck accident can occur when the back-end of the vehicle does not clear the roadway in time. A recent truck accident took the life of a Louisiana man after a garbage vehicle and his smaller car collided.
The fatal crash took place on a local highway in the early morning hours, just before sunrise. A middle-aged man driving a large garbage truck waited at a stop sign and made the decision to cross one side of the highway. As the truck pulled out onto the road and attempted to reach the opening in the median, he made contact with an oncoming car.
