Many tractor-trailer rigs pass through West Virginia on its numerous miles of highways. The location of the state promotes heavy commercial transportation as truckers deliver their wares in all directions. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents involving cars and these semis can result in serious injuries or deaths. However, a recent fatality occurred involving a parked tractor-trailer rig and a hit-and-run driver in Jefferson County.
Drunk driving is reckless and dangerous, and the consequences can often be deadly. A recent crash in Odd, West Virginia, that left one person dead illustrates the dangers of this type of negligent behavior and how it increases the chance of motor vehicle accidents. Though this collision involved just one car, the driver was allegedly drunk and had three passengers in the vehicle with him.
