Childhood Fascination Turns to Real-Life Nightmare

by Staff Blogger | February 1st, 2017

If you were like a lot of kids, you were fascinated by big machinery when you were young. From dump trucks to front loaders, these larger-than-life vehicles seemed capable of moving mountains. For many, tractor-trailers belonged on that list. You watched in wonder as these massive trucks passed your car on the interstate, hoping the driver would see you and blow his horn. Unfortunately for many Tennesseans in recent years, that childhood fascination turned into a real-life nightmare.

Tractor-trailers can carry more than 80,000 lbs. and at full speed, have the force behind them to crush a car in less than two seconds. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be on the wrong side of a tractor-trailer crash, you know just how terrifying it can be in that moment when you realize you can’t get out of the way. Sadly, far too many accident victims don’t walk away from those types of crashes. And the ones who are lucky enough to survive suffer severe injuries that can take months, even years to recover from.
