On Wednesday morning, a tractor-trailer collision left the driver of a car fatally injured. Around 7:45 am, in Greenville, South Carolina a car slid underneath a tractor-trailer, and the victim sustained fatal injuries at the scene of the crash. During the incident, snow was falling, which may have contributed to the truck accident.
Poor weather conditions create hazardous roadways, which contribute to the likelihood of motor vehicle accidents. Ice and snow further complicate driving, and could lead to spin-outs and collisions with other cars as well as personal injuries and even fatalities for any parties involved. In some cases, drivers may fail to use caution or lose control of their cars when traveling on icy streets.
