One Person Hospitalized in Two Semi- Accident on Interstate 80 in Meander Reservoir, Ohio

Meander Reservoir, Ohio — One person was hospitalized with head injuries after two semi-trucks collided. The incident occurred shortly after 6 a.m. on Tuesday on Interstate 80 eastbound of the Meander Reservoir.

According to reports, the incident unfolded when a semi-tractor-trailer slammed into another truck that had stopped along the highway.

No other details have been provided.

Thoughts on collisions between semi-trucks

Semitrucks should never stop on the highways. If a mechanical issue forces a truck to stop suddenly, the truck driver must take all safety precautions to avoid an accident. A stopped semi should have emergency flashers and warning devices outside the truck. Did the semi-truck follow safety measures? Did the second semi keep enough distance and time to avoid colliding with the semi?

People were injured. They deserve answers. A thorough investigation needs to answer whether safety protocols were followed and ensure the injured receive the medical and financial help they need.
