Tractor-Trailer Crash in Smyrna Claims Woman’s Life

Tractor-Trailer Crash in Smyrna Claims Woman’s Life

In Smyrna, Delaware, a tractor-trailer crash occurred which claimed the life of a woman. Around 6 am, on Monday morning, the fatal truck accident took place when a tractor-trailer, which was trying to make a right turn from US 13 onto Brentford Road, struck a sedan on the left side. Upon impact from the tractor-trailer crash, the sedan, which was driven by a woman from Clayton, Delaware, slammed into a pole and then overturned. The woman succumbed to her fatal injuries at the scene of the accident while the 73-year-old tractor-trailer driver from Maryland incurred no personal injuries during the crash.

Accidents involving tractor-trailers usually bring about injuries or potential fatalities for passengers and drivers. Due to the size and girth of the truck, even experienced operators may find it challenging to maneuver the vehicle safely when turning or traveling down a road. Unfortunately, serious accidents may result from driver fatigue or truck drivers who may not be given enough training.
