One Person Dead and Another Injured in an Accident Involving a Semi-Truck and Bucket Truck at Intersection 53 in Lombard, Illinois

Lombard, IL – One person was killed and another seriously injured when a semi-truck struck the bucket truck they were traveling in. The incident occurred Saturday night at the intersection of Route 53 and North Avenue in Lombard.

Authorities have refrained from disclosing the identities of the deceased, nor have they provided additional details regarding the circumstances of the accident.

Thoughts on collisions with semi-trucks

We are left with many unanswered questions. What caused this semi-truck to collide with the boom truck? Most collisions happen because of driver error, such as inattentiveness, speeding beyond traffic conditions, impairment, or disregarding traffic signs or laws. Mechanical issues (such as brake failure) even cause some accidents. Were any of these factors the cause here?

An investigation by trained professionals can help give the families of the deceased and injured the answers they need. If it is concluded that wrongdoing or negligence contributed to this crash, the semi-truck driver and the trucking company they are employed by should be held accountable.

Our thoughts are with the surviving family and the injured. May they find the answers, healing, and justice they deserve.
