Truck Driver Injured in an Accident with Another Semi-Truck on Route 35 near Frankfort, Ohio

Frankfort, Ohio — A man was airlifted to a trauma hospital after a semi-truck struck his semi-truck near Frankfort. The incident took place at approximately 1:30 a.m.

According to reports, a semi-truck hauling an empty trailer was entering the highway’s on-ramp from State Route 138 when it collided with the rear of a semi-tanker parked along the on-ramp. The driver of the tanker was inside the sleeper cab at the time of the impact.

The collision force caused the semi-truck, identified as a Super Ego Transport vehicle, to veer off the ramp, overturn, and land in a nearby field. Extrication efforts were initiated.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on Semi-Truck Accidents

Being a truck driver is a dangerous job. In fact, 1 out of every 6 American workers killed on the job is a tractor-trailer truck driver, and tractor-trailer drivers have the highest number of nonfatal injuries across all occupations ( US Bureau of Labor Statistics). Truck drivers deserve to be safe on the job. Whenever a trucker suffers life-changing injuries due to another driver’s mistakes, the trucker deserves answers and compensation.

Trained professionals can help determine what caused this accident and all parties that share fault. If it is determined the trucking company failed to provide the truck driver adequate training on safe driving, they may also share fault for the injuries caused in this accident.

May the injured driver recover quickly and receive the answers they need.
