1 dead, 2 injured in semi crash in Columbus

Columbus has a lot of heavy traffic and construction, so drivers who are passing through the area have to be cautious. Unfortunately, not everyone pays attention. This may have been what led to a crash in Columbus that took the life of one and harmed two others.

According to the June 11 report, the crash happened when a semitruck swerved into another semi to avoid stopped traffic. The driver, a 69-year-old man, caused a chain-reaction crash.

As a result of his actions, a 56-year-old man driving a 2011 Toyota Corolla crashed and died. Two other drivers had to be rushed to area hospitals. Those victims, 29 and 77 respectively, did not have their medical conditions released.

Right now, the police are still investigating, but no charges have been placed. The police do not believe that drugs or alcohol were involved in the collision.

Crashes like this are horrifying because it shows how quickly drivers can be impacted by truck drivers' mistakes. A single mistake made by a truck driver can impact many lanes of traffic, harming multiple people and even killing those who are just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It's impossible to predict accidents like this, but drivers should be aware of their surroundings and do what they can to give semis time to slow down and stop. Stop-and-go traffic is dangerous, so if you can, avoid driving in a lane with a semi behind or beside you. That way, you'll be less likely to be impacted by the errors that could be made by a semi driver.
