Fatal truck accident in Lawrence County on U.S. 23 leaves one dead, Louisa, Kentucky

Louisa, KentuckyA major two-vehicle accident involving a semi-truck hauling logs and a red pickup truck has resulted in one death.

The crash happened early Tuesday morning on U.S. 23 near Route 581, south of Louisa.

Information regarding the cause of the crash was not released as authorities continued their investigation.

No further information was available.

Trained attorneys will need to investigate this crash to ensure the family’s rights are protected.

Following a fatal accident, it is important to have the crash investigated by independent parties as soon as possible to ensure the cause of the accident is accurately determined. When only one party survives a crash, you must give special attention to the physical evidence to determine what happened. However, trained attorneys can also gain access to information held by the trucking company to piece the moments before the accident together and ensure the family receives the full story about their loved one’s passing.

The surviving family deserves answer and justice if the evidence shows wrongdoing on the part of the truck driver caused or contributed to their loved one’s death. Kentucky is a comparative fault state, meaning even if the deceased motorist was partially at fault for the crash, the actions of the trucker are still considered in a court of law. And this is fair. The trucker will go home to his family, the driver of the truck will not. This is an injustice that the law seeks to remedy. And while the law cannot ease the pain of loss, it can help lessen the financial impact of an unexpected passing and ease the financial burden on the grieving family.

I extend my deepest condolences to those impacted by this crash and pray that you may find the peace you need to endure this difficult time of grief.
