Tractor Trailer Crash Kills Maryland Woman and Three Children

By Alpert Schreyer on November 17, 2016

Just this past Friday, a fatal crash involving a tractor trailer occurred on I-95 in South Carolina, resulting in four deaths.

A woman from Maryland and three children were sitting in the back seat of a 2001 Ford Taurus when a tractor-trailer approached the vehicle from behind and struck it just before 4:00am ET, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol spokesman Seargeant Bob Beres.  The impact of the crash on the southbound side of I-95 near Yemassee, SC, caused both vehicles to leave the road and go into a small ravine while striking several trees.

The three children were siblings ages four, five, and seven and they have not been identified publicly pending their relatives being notified.  Colleton County coroner Richard M. Harvey stated that the woman’s relationship to the children has not yet been determined.

The truck drove on top of the car, crushing it and trapping the passengers and the driver, identified as 27-year-old Nancy Torres, who is at the Trident Medical Center in North Charleston, SC in critical condition with multiple traumatic injuries.

Many of us travel on highways every day and we are reminded sometimes just how dangerous interstates can really be.  With the holidays approaching, make sure to drive defensively…especially where there are large vehicles such as tractor trailers.  If an accident occurs that you believe was the result of another person’s negligence or could have otherwise been prevented, always get medical help first.  Then contact the Maryland commercial vehicle accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC for a free case evaluation where we will listen to you, assemble the facts and fight to get you the rightful compensation you deserve.  Call or contact us today!
