A semi truck accident injured an Idaho Falls man who was traveling north of American Falls last Monday. Idaho State Police reported that the injury crash occurred when a man from Idaho Falls attempted to turn in front of an oncoming semi truck. The semi truck struck the front end of the man’s car. At the time of the accident, the Idaho Falls man was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt. He was transported by ground ambulance to a nearby hospital for injury evaluation. The driver of the semi truck was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
Common Reasons For Semi Truck Accidents After a Left Hand Turn
Semi truck accidents are often the most dangerous because of the diversity between the weight of a semi truck and the weight of a small vehicle. Typically a semi truck weighs 80,000 pounds. Compare that with a small car that only weighs about 4,000 pounds. As can be expected, the impact of a crash to the small vehicle can be catastrophic even at slow speeds.
Often times semi truck accidents occur when a driver attempts a left turn due to the following conditions.
- Failure to look.
- Driver is distracted.
- Driver is fatigued.
