The shipping and transportation industries are what keep America moving forward. Without tractor-trailers and their ability to haul large quantities of goods from one place to another, the USA could very easily fall into the crippling mess that drives up the costs of goods. One of the goods transported most by 18-wheelers is carbonated beverages – one of America’s most popular consumer goods.
On Wednesday, September 5th, a tractor-trailer carrying soda overturned in the westbound lane of I-90 in Whitesboro. While no one was hurt in the accident, the truck rig itself was totaled and the trailer of the truck demolished 30 yards from the guard rail.
Despite the many safety features installed on tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and large commercial vehicles, serious accidents still happen every day on our highways.
