Tractor trailer crash leaves 1 dead, 2 injured

Anytime there is a tractor trailer crash that involves a smaller vehicle, serious injuries are likely to occur. This was the case when a 17-year-old Williamston girl died as the result of injuries she suffered in an accident in Pelzer. The girl died at Greenville Memorial Hospital as the result of multiple injuries she sustained in the truck accident.

According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the girl was traveling in a Honda with two other people when it was struck by a 1996 Kenworth tractor trailer. The truck accident occurred on U.S. 29 and Ballard Road a little after 9:30 in the evening. The girl was airlifted to Greenville after the accident. Two others were also injured and taken to local medical facilities for treatment.

Witnesses state that the Honda stopped at a stop sign and then entered the intersection where it was hit by the tractor trailer. The 51-year-old driver of the truck was not injured, and the accident is still under investigation. One fact is known: a young girl is dead and two of her friends are seriously injured.

When people are injured in a tractor trailer crash, or any motor vehicle accident involving negligence, they may be entitled to collect damages for their injuries. Those who have suffered injury, or the family of anyone who has been killed, would do well to seek out a personal injury lawyer experienced in personal injury and wrongful death claims in South Carolina. The lawyer can help get important answers; move to preserve crucial evidence and press claims for damages against negligent parties to hold them fully accountable under the law.
