Truck accident in Iowa results in severe injuries for 3 people

If you've been involved in a truck accident, you know that your entire life can change in an instant. The weight of such a large vehicle compared to your passenger vehicle can cause severe, even life-threatening injuries upon impact. That's why it's important to seek compensation for the truck accident; you shouldn't have to worry about money when you're already facing injuries.

Your crash may have been similar to one that was recently reported in the news. Three people were badly hurt in a pickup truck-semi-truck crash on July 22. Two of those people were left with critical injuries, and the other was injured badly enough to be taken to the hospital. This crash happened at around 4:45 p.m. on U.S. Highway 71 and 200th Street West.

What happened to cause so much pain and suffering? The Iowa State Patrol said that a pickup was northbound on Highway 71 with the semi-truck following behind it. At that time, the semi-truck driver allegedly tried to pass the pickup in an intersection, but the driver passed too closely. The semi came into contact with the rear corner of the pickup, causing the truck to go through a ditch and then to collide with a tree.

Two people in the pickup truck, a 36-year-old man and 41-year-old from Red Oak, were critically injured in the crash. They had to be rushed to the hospital via a medical helicopter to Nebraska Medical Center, which is based in Omaha. The third person in the pickup, a 42-year-old man, was taken to Montgomery County Memorial Hospital in Red Oak, Iowa. Two days following the accident, the hospital in Omaha reported that the two critically injured victims were in fair condition.
