Truck driver charged in fatal crash

A Virginia trucking company is being investigated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in the wake of a fatal accident involving a dump truck. The accident, which occurred earlier this month in Prince William County, claimed the life of a 40-year-old man from South Riding, Virginia. The truck driver involved was arrested and charged with reckless driving.

According to police, the truck accident was caused by the dump truck driver. The 65-year-old driver turned himself into police the day after the accident, after he was charged. The accident occurred on southbound Route 29 at Bull Run Post Office Road. The victim of the accident was a stay-at-home father of three young daughters. He was killed when the dump truck crashed head-on into the SUV he was driving.

According to a preliminary investigation, the accident occurred when the dump truck, which was traveling southbound on Route 29, crossed over into the northbound lane and struck a pickup truck. The dump truck swerved back into the southbound lane and then back again into the northbound lane where it smashed into the SUV. The driver of the pickup truck and her three passengers were not injured.

This truck accident illustrates how suddenly and unexpectedly a person can lose his or her life through the reckless actions of another driver. When people are injured or killed in truck accidents, families want to know what happened and who is to blame. At times such as this, those affected by an accident may want to consult with an experienced attorney who can explain their options for seeking damages from those responsible.
