New York crash involving garbage truck kills two in car

A recent car accident involving a truck may result in an investigation as to who was at fault and whether there was negligence involved. The accident happened on Long Island and involved a garbage truck and a BMW. The accident apparently happened at about 4 a.m. in an intersection. The two vehicles collided, killing both individuals in the BMW. When the vehicles collided, there was apparently a very loud explosion of flames.

Police say the accident was so serious that it was hard to identify the two individuals who died in the BMW. Authorities took the driver of the garbage truck to the hospital.

When a smaller vehicle is involved in an accident with a truck, no matter the size, the outcome is often quite serious. Smaller vehicles are often no match for these large vehicles. Whether it’s a garbage truck or a semi, there are a variety of reasons why a truck accident might occur.

A truck accident such as this could happen due to driver fatigue. If a driver has been on the road for a long time or is working an early-morning shift, he or she may be drowsy. The driver may also not be qualified to driver such a large vehicle. It may later be found that the driver has a history of accidents or road violations. Violations, such as speeding or improper lane changes, can lead to devastating accidents that leave innocent victims dead.

If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, it’s important to gather all necessary information in order to understand if negligence was involved.
