A truck Accident in the 8000 block of Peoina Road in Grayson County, Kentucky, Claims the Life of Woman

Grayson County, Kentucky – On Monday, at approximately 7:45 p.m., a two-vehicle collision resulted in a fatality.

According to preliminary reports, a Ford F450 towing a trailer with an over-dimensional portable shed was traveling west on Peoina Road when an eastbound vehicle collided with the trailer on the driver’s side.

The driver of the eastbound vehicle, Lisa Meredith, did not survive the impact and was pronounced deceased at the accident scene.

The Ford truck driver emerged from the incident without injuries.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on Oversize Load Accidents

We have all seen them on the roadways: trucks hauling oversized loads that take up a considerable amount of lane space. Since these trucks occupy more room than traditional vehicles, they must practice extreme caution and have a higher sense of safety. Whenever an oversized load is on the roadways, it must have warning signs, flags, lights, and other devices to alert other motorists of the oversized load. If a truck fails to do this, the driver and its employer should be held accountable for the loss of life. Commercial operators cannot transport oversized loads and escape liability when they fail to provide space for other motorists to travel safely.

The Meredith family deserves answers as to why this accident happened. Did this truck have the proper permits to travel? Did the truck have safety equipment warning nearby drivers of its size? This very accident happens far more often than people realize, and while the person moving the trailer may try to shift responsibility onto the motorist, this is not fair. Commercial companies must take reasonable precautions to ensure they do not cause preventable accidents.

Answers are needed. Justice is needed. My hope is all wrongdoers are held accountable and that the surviving family receives the answers they need during this difficult time.
