Semi-truck Rear-end Collision: Accident Sends Drivers to the Hospital on US-131 near West U Avenue, in Schoolcraft Township, Michigan

Schoolcraft Township, Michigan — A semi-truck rear-ended a Dodge Ram at a traffic light, sending both drivers to the hospital. The incident took place on Tuesday at US-131 near West U Avenue in Schoolcraft.

Preliminary reports state driving too fast for conditions and careless driving are contributing factors.

No other details have been released.

Thoughts on semi-trucks ignoring safe driving practices

A big part of being a responsible, safe truck driver lies in learning to adjust speed to current traffic conditions. That includes slowing down on streets with traffic lights. According to reports, the semi-truck driver was driving too fast for conditions. This is unacceptable, and the motoring public should not tolerate it. Truckers should be held accountable whenever they ignore basic safety rules and cause injuries.

Trucking companies must also do a better job of vetting their drivers for repeated traffic law violations and providing safety training. When trucking companies fail to hold their drivers to a high caliber or do not provide them with the necessary education to always have safety in mind, the companies can also share fault when a collision results in injuries.

May the injured recover quickly and receive any compensation owed to them for negligence.
