A Pennsylvania truck driver faces impending charges for being involved in a tractor-trailer accident with a car in South Lebanon Township, Lebanon County. The trucker had missed a turn that he intended to make, so he continued down the road and tried to turn around to go back. In the process, according to a police news release, the semi-truck blocked both lanes of SR 419.
A fatal semi-truck accident occurred during the morning of Oct. 4, 2012 in Allentown, and the wife of the deceased is seeking damages of more than $75,000 in a wrongful death action. The lawsuit claims a negligent driver of a big rig caused her husband's death. She also named the truck driver's employers and the companies that contracted the driver's work in the suit for failing to provide better training and supervision.
