Traffic accidents in Florida claim the lives of approximately 3,000 people every year. Crashes involving commercial motor vehicles tend to have very negative outcomes. This is due to the fact that a semi-truck or big rig carries a very large amount of weight and force. A crash involving one of these vehicles is very likely to do serious damage to a smaller passenger car and cause major and even fatal injuries to the occupants.
Our condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim following this semi-truck crash in Royal Palm Beach.
