BROOKLYN: Freeway Accident on Interstate 70 Leaves Two Dead

FATAL ACCIDENT INVOLVED TRACTOR TRAILER LEAVES TWO DEAD

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (February 27, 2017) – Two people were killed after a truck burst into flames after it ran into the back of a tractor trailer on the freeway, according to ABC 7 News.

Police are saying that the truck involved in the accident was at a complete standstill due to slowed traffic on the freeway.

The car involved in the accident was not able to slow down in time and ran into the semi. Most semi-trucks have bars on the back of them in order to help mitigate the impact of rear end collisions.

Because trucks are typically higher than other cars, when a vehicle runs into the back it can get pushed under and put into a dangerous position.

Authorities will continue to investigate the collision in order to determine liability.

I Chose The Right Attorney - “Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
