Foggy Weather Results in Missouri Truck Accidents
Many tractor trailer drivers have to drive during the night hours in order to make their deliveries on time. While the weather in St. Louis might be warming up, that doesn’t always mean driving conditions are perfect. Fog can create serious problems for tractor trailers; especially when they’ve been driving for too long or they’re not paying close attention to the road.
According to an article on the St. Louis Fox News website, these types of foggy conditions that are common during this time of year have caused some serious accidents in the area. One tractor trailer crashed through a guard rail and went up a hill off of I-44. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt because of this accident. However, as you know, that is not always the case.
Weather conditions, strict deadlines and distracted driving can all lead to accidents for truck drivers, and it seems there are more and more of these types of accidents every year. As your St. Louis truck accident attorney, we want to remind you to please use extreme caution when you’re traveling through the area at night or in the early morning hours. Fog is a serious problem, and even though the ice and snow have melted away, truck drivers who aren’t careful can still crash.
