Last April, a load of steel coils spilled across I-71 in Van Buren, Ohio in a tractor-trailer rollover accident. The preliminary investigation suggested that the driver drove off the left side of the road into the median before the truck re-entered the roadway, rolled and lost its load of coils.
This could have been disastrous had there been other vehicles in the immediate area.
Less than a month later another tractor-trailer spilled a load of steel pipes onto a dark California highway. This caused a bus accident where four passengers were killed and others were injured.
Not only will there be long, drawn out legal battles in these kinds accidents, but there will be pain and suffering, as well. This is the kind of thing you want to avoid at all costs.
