Truck accident attorneys in Orlando are warning drivers of the risk of injury from unsecured truck cargo. Loose construction material and debris falling from trucks causes many I-4 construction accidents in Central Florida. Generally, however, car accidents injure many people because improperly stowed truck cargo becomes airborne on the highway. The most graphic recent example is that of a driver who was nearly decapitated when a sheet of plywood sliced into her windshield.
Police say the only reason the accident didn’t kill the driver is that the plywood was wider than the windshield of her car. They say the accident would have killed or seriously injured a passenger in the car. The plywood was in the bed of a truck. The truck’s driver thought he had tied the load down properly, but the wind on the highway can be tricky.
