One dead after tractor rear-ended by pickup

Motorists in Illinois farming communities need to be alert not just to other cars or trucks on the road but also to tractors at all times. Similarly, tractor drivers must remain constantly aware of their own safety while operating tractors on local and state roads. Injuries resulting from a tractor accident, tractor trailer accident or tractor-motor vehicle accident can be serious, even deadly.

Unfortunately, such was the case recently in Cumberland County when a truck rear-ended a tractor near the intersection of U.S. 45 and Illinois 121. A female passenger in the truck was killed as a result of the collision. The truck driver was treated at a local hospital but later released. It was not indicated if the tractor driver suffered any injuries. The amount of damage to either vehicle was also not noted.

The accident occurred at night and further illustrates again the need for vigilance when driving on rural Illinois roads. A truck accident such as this can occur in a flash and, sadly, result in the loss of life. Law enforcement authorities report that the truck driver received a citation for both his failure to reduce speed in an effort to prevent or avoid an accident as well as for driving under the influence.

When a truck or tractor accident occurs, it can be helpful to consult with a personal injury attorney. An experienced professional can provide the right guidance in the event of any injury or death to the injured party or their loved ones.
