Many of our readers are used to seeing occasionally on the roadways, but accidents that involve semi-trucks can be quite different from accidents in which only passenger vehicles are involved. Accidents involving semi-trucks can cause devastating consequences, including fatalities. That was, unfortunately, the result in a recent collision in New Mexico.
According to reports, the collision occurred on March 24 in the southwestern part of the state, near Lordsburg, at approximately 3:30 pm. The reports indicate that a semi-truck crossed the center median of Interstate 10, slamming into a pickup truck and then another semi-truck head-on. Both drivers of the semi-trucks were killed in the collision, as were a man and a woman in the pickup truck. A young girl in the pickup truck, a 13-year-old, suffered severe injuries, according to the reports. In all, this was a devastating incident for all involved.
