The incident occurred just before 11:00 a.m. on June 27.


According to reports from the police, a Jeep Wrangler was involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer on Interstate 20. The incident prompted the police to close down the roadway as they actively worked to remove the damage to vehicles from the scene.

An investigation into the crash is currently underway.


Our sympathies go out to the family of Robert Brown at this time.


Fatal Truck Accidents in Alabama

The impact of a motor vehicle accident on the victim and their family is often devastating. Tragically, many individuals are unable to overcome the injuries they suffered as a result of their accidents. As a result, our state witnesses approximately 1,000 fatalities each year as a result of traffic-related incidents.


While we can take proactive measures to ensure the safety of others on the road, we cannot control the actions of fellow drivers or guarantee their adherence to safety precautions. Consequently, we continue to witness innocent lives being lost in accidents caused by negligence. Some of the most common contributing factors to collisions in our state include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, distracted driving (such as cellphone use or eating while driving), speeding, and disregarding traffic control devices.


When individuals engage in reckless behaviors while operating their vehicles, they put the lives of innocent parties at risk. Families who experience the tragic loss of a loved one in accidents due to these and other acts of negligence should immediately seek the guidance of a Forests wrongful death attorney. By doing so, they may be able to pursue financial compensation to help alleviate the financial hardships they face during this difficult time.
