Commercial truck accidents are extremely dangerous due to the large size and heavy weight of tractor trailers.
Many people remember the fatal accident in which truck driver, John Wayne Johnson, crashed into a car carrying five Georgia nursing students, killing them all. Well, just last week, a grand jury indicted the commercial truck driver and his employer, Total Transportation, for the fatal and fiery interstate wreck. In April of last year, a tractor-trailer driver, John Wayne Johnson, caused a fiery interstate truck crash that killed five Georgia Southern University nursing students. His big-rig was traveling in stop and go traffic on Interstate 16 when he crashed into the girls car.
The traffic accident happened around six a.m. and Johnson said he had his cruise control set at 68 miles per hour. He also stated that his commercial truck was equipped with collision warning technology that would beep if he became too close to other vehicles. Unfortunately, it did not help in this case because he said he never heard it go off. Johnson walked away from the incident unscathed.
