Macon, GA (Sept. 20, 2023) – A traffic accident on September 18 involving a logging truck is still being looked into by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. At the intersection of Broadway and Guy Paine Road, the collision occurred just before noon.
A 28-year-old Warner Robins woman was traveling north on Broadway, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. She was following a logging truck when the truck pulled onto Guy Paine Road and struck her Honda car.
According to deputies, the Honda veered off the road, colliding with a tree and a parked, unoccupied patrol car from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. A newborn baby and the Honda’s driver were sent to Atrium Health Navicent in Macon. According to the report, the driver was in critical condition. The infant was identified as stable.
The logging truck’s driver allegedly did not stop, according to deputies. Investigations into the traffic accident are still going on.
Commercial vehicles transport goods or passengers for a company or an individual. In other words, they are intended for business use rather than personal use. A commercial vehicle’s liability in an accident can influence how an accident victim seeks compensation.
It is not always clear who is to blame when a commercial vehicle is involved in an accident.
When two cars collide, one or both drivers are usually at fault. The at-fault driver(s) would then be held liable for the damages. This usually means that their car insurance company will cover the costs.
However, liability for a truck accident may fall on the driver, the company that employs the driver, or a third party, such as a manufacturer or mechanic.
You may be entitled to compensation if you were injured in a commercial vehicle accident. It is necessary to determine who caused the accident, who hired the driver, and what kind of insurance they have.
These details are not always easy to obtain on your own, which is why you should always contact a knowledgeable Truck Accident Lawyer as soon as possible to help with your case.
