Over a period of just a few weeks, Michigan has witnessed a worrying number of crashes involving semi-trucks. Some of these accidents have been fatal. Some have been literally explosive. But all of these crashes have raised serious concerns about traffic safety in the Great Lake State, especially in the context of truck accidents.

In order to pursue reliable, genuine financial compensation for your medical expenses and missed wages, you need to file a personal injury lawsuit against those responsible for your accident. A qualified attorney can guide you through the entire legal process in a confident, efficient manner.
Semi-Truck Accident in Wayne Kills Resident
On June 30th, it was reported that a 78-year-old resident was killed after a semi-truck accident in Wayne. Not many details were released, but the accident involved a passenger car and a semi-truck. Four people were transported to nearby hospitals, with one in critical condition and the other stabilized. The individual who passed away was riding as a passenger.
Man Killed in Cadillac After Semi-Truck Accident
On July 8th, it was reported that a man had died after a collision with a semi-truck. The accident occured at an intersection, and investigators believe that the man who passed away failed to stop at the stop sign. This put him into a direct collision course with the semi-truck. The individual was declared dead at the scene.
Fuel Tanker Ignites Outside of Detroit
On July 13th, it was reported that a fuel tanker had caught fire on Interstate 75, just outside of Detroit. Faced with this safety concern, authorities closed down the section of the highway while repairs and maintenance were conducted. The driver of the tanker was unharmed for the most part, having escaped the flames in time. The tanker had struck a median, resulting in 14,000 gallons of fuel igniting. Fortunately, no innocent people were caught in the blaze.
Later, it was reported that the area of this explosion would take six weeks to repair. This would cost taxpayers $1.5 million in total, and it would no doubt lead to traffic issues while the construction was taking place – perhaps creating a risk for future accidents.
