When you head to work, school or activities on the highway, you expect drivers to be aware of their surroundings. Negligence in the form of talking on the phone, eating or driving drunk can lead to accidents that leave victims with serious injuries or fatal wounds. This story, reported on Aug. 7, talks about a man from Pennsylvania who now has to answer for why he drove into the back of another person's vehicle.
The trucker from Pennsylvania is facing a reckless driving charge for being involved in a pileup crash that killed two people and injured a number of others while he was traveling through Virginia. The 50-year-old man was driving a flatbed tractor-trailer at the time of the crash. The crash took place when the tractor-trailer failed to stop and slammed into the rear of a sport-utility vehicle on Interstate 64 in Albemarle County.
