Tractor-Trailer Crash in Macon County

On Monday morning, a multi-vehicle crash involving a semi truck injured at least nine people. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened in the southbound lanes of US-441, near Lake Emory and the Franklin exit, at North East Main Street. Although very few details have been released, we do know that at least six vehicles were involved in the crash, including a tractor trailer. Apparently, the semi truck rear-ended a pickup truck, which turned into to a chain-reaction crash. Additionally, the wreck happened near a construction zone.

Nine People Injured in Truck Crash

The crash happened sometime before 11:20 a.m., on Highway 441 South. At least nine people were injured. Of those injured, four were rushed to the hospital for treatment, including one woman who was airlifted to Mission Hospital in Asheville. There is no word on any of the victims' current conditions, but the woman who was airlifted reportedly suffered from a head injury. At this time, there's no word on the status of the investigation or whether or not any charges have been made against the truck driver.

After a Truck Accident in Asheville

If you have been injured or if you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, you need to speak with an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible about your case. Since cases involving commercial truck accidents are frequently much more complex than accidents involving traditional passenger vehicles, it's essential to have somebody who understands the commercial truck accident investigative process on your side. The initial police report doesn't always tell the whole story. It might not be immediately apparent if a truck driver or commercial trucking company was in violation of some federal regulation. Speaking with an attorney after your accident should be a top priority.

The team at Davis Law Group, P.A. wishes everybody involved in the crash swift and full recoveries from their injuries.
