Semi-Truck Accidents In Heber City
Individuals who are involved in accidents with semi-trucks or other vehicles often sustain catastrophic and life-changing injuries. Thankfully, that is not the case in this incident.
Semi-trucks are far larger than typical passenger vehicles, often weighing in excess of 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. The massive size and weight of these vehicles make it difficult for drivers to stop suddenly or respond to obstacles and dangers in the roadway. Including snow in the mix makes this dire situation even worse.
