A multi-vehicle accident on I-85 between Montgomery and Atlanta in Macon County, Alabama has claimed one life and seriously injured another. An initial report indicates the deadly crash was started by a single car accident. The fatal crash occurred when an 18 wheeler truck crashed into the rear of an SUV claiming the life of Alice Summers of Valley. The driver of the SUV, Henry Lee Davis, was seriously injured in the wreck and was taken to Baptist South Hospital. Police are still investigating this crash.
This tragic truck accident is a prime example of the dangers of 18 wheelers. The size, weight and speed of these vehicles makes any accident involving a truck a serious one. As drivers we all need to be very aware of where 18 wheelers are on the highways and to be sure to give them plenty of room for turning and stopping.
