Driver of crushed car uninjured after truck accident

In an accident that involved a large semi-truck that crushed a smaller vehicle, the truly astonishing aspect is that the man driving the crushed car was able to escape the accident without any injuries.

The wreck occurred on a Thruway near Montezuma, New York. The truck and the car in question were near another accident scene, and there were warnings that vehicles needed to slow down due to the accident and the traffic the accident caused. The smaller car was struck from behind by the large semi-truck after the driver of the truck was unable to stop his vehicle in time. The truck then jumped on top of the car and crushed it, causing a chain reaction crash that involved numerous other vehicles as well.

It appears that no one was seriously injured in the wreck, though many vehicles were damaged as a result.

First and foremost, it is amazing that the individual in the crushed car was unharmed by this wreck and it's great that this story at least has a silver lining to it. But with that said, there were people who did suffer injuries, albeit minor ones, in this wreck -- and there are plenty of examples of truck accidents where people suffer truly terrible injuries.

When trucks are involved with a wreck, things are more complicated and likely more dangerous. Trucks are big powerful vehicles that can deal serious injuries to accident victims. If the driver or the truck company fails to act in safe or proper ways, then they could be held liable for any wreck they are involved in.
