Man Dies in an Accident with a Semi-truck on Interstate 96 in Windsor Township, Michigan

Windsor Township, Mich. – One man is dead after a semi-truck collided with his vehicle on Interstate 96. The incident took place at 2 am Friday.

According to reports, a westbound tractor-trailer drifted onto the shoulder and overcorrected, causing the truck to cross into the left lane and collide with a concrete barrier set up for construction. The impact caused the trailer to breach the barrier and enter the eastbound lane, where a Buick struck the trailer.

The driver of the Buick was pronounced dead at the scene.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on fatal semi-truck collisions

The surviving family of the deceased deserves answers. Should this truck driver have even been driving? Apparently not. Motorists should never lose their lives due to someone else’s negligence. Fatal accidents cause life-altering changes for the surviving family. The emotional and financial burden placed unfairly on their shoulders is crippling. When such tragedies occur, the surviving family members should have the right to seek answers and pursue justice.
