Newport News Truck Accident Attorney Report : Death is Confirmed in Three Vehicle Crash Involving a Truck in Newport News
State police say one death resulted from an accident involving a truck on I-64 in Newport News on January 18, 2013.
As an experienced Newport News trucking accident attorney, I’m well aware of the serious nature of many accidents involving tractor trailers. The circumstances of this crash are not yet clear. My thoughts are with the family of the deceased.
The three vehicle accident occurred westbound on the Interstate at Lee Hall in the early hours of the morning.
“The tractor trailer involved has significant amount of diesel fuel spill and has turned the scene to a working fatal and hazmat spill,” said State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya.
The accident shut down all lanes on the interstate on the morning of January 18, 2013.
State Police were rerouting traffic off the I-64 at Lee Hall and back on to the interstate at Jefferson Avenue.
There are many causes of accidents involving trucks. Fatigued driving is a cause of a number of early morning truck crashes, but it’s not clear if this was a factor in this morning’s wreck.
