A multiple vehicle accident between a big-rig and another vehicle has snarled traffic along PA Route 283 near Mount Joy and Elizabethtown, as reported by LancasterOnline. Injuries were reported, but it is unknown how serious the injuries are or where the injured were taken after the accident.
Car vs. Truck Accidents Can Be Very Serious
Big rigs are, by definition, big. When you combine that much mass with the momentum required to propel that truck down the freeway, it’s no surprise that semi-trucks have a hard time stopping in a short amount of space. Typically, in an accident involving a passenger vehicle and a semi-truck or tractor trailer, the injuries sustained by the truck driver are minor compared to the occupants of a car.
