Accident Claims Life in Crash Between 18-Wheeler and Pickup Truck in McCalla, Jefferson County, Alabama

McCalla, Jefferson County, Alabama –  A midday crash occurred at an intersection in western Jefferson County, resulting in the loss of one individual’s life. The collision transpired at McAshan Road and Old Tuscaloosa Highway in McCalla.

Involved in the incident were a Publix 18-wheeler and a pickup truck.

The pickup truck driver succumbed to their injuries and was pronounced deceased at UAB West.

The driver of the 18-wheeler emerged from the collision unharmed.

Further Investigation Needed to Find Cause of Truck Accident that Caused a Death

These large truck accidents are happening too often. Smaller passenger vehicles are the ones that suffer the consequences in these large truck accidents, with 68 percent of fatalities being an occupant of smaller or noncommercial vehicles. Whenever someone loses their life in a road accident, it is owed to the family that all the facts come out and all wrongdoing is identified.

While we do not know what transpired with the 18-wheeler and pickup truck, we know that there is often more to the incident than first reported. This is why it is essential for a proper investigation to take place and for the accident to be examined from all angles.

If the facts point to negligence from the truck driver or trucking company, they must be held responsible for any failures that resulted in the death of this pickup truck driver.
