An SUV and a box truck crashed on Thursday morning, causing a fatality and critical injuries in Wilmington, Delaware. The accident occurred around 11:42 am, and city firefighters needed to extricate the SUV driver and passenger from their vehicle. Unfortunately, the driver succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene of the SUV and truck crash, and the passenger was flown to the Christiana Hospital for critical injuries.
When a truck engages in an accident with a smaller vehicle, the possibility of personal injuries or even fatalities is great. A truck’s size and girth may cause the accident to be direr, especially if excessive speed contributed to the impact. Due to an SUV’s top-heavy design, rollover accidents may also occur, which may cause catastrophic injuries.
