|Trailer Carrying Cars Falls apart on Highway during accidents|
On the Interstate 64 in Virginia (VA), a trailer which carried automobiles hit a car and fell apart along the highway and resulted in major delays since two lanes had to be closed. This truck/car accident happened on the eastbound lanes close to the Camp Peary exit. After the tractor trailer hit the car, it slammed into an overhead sign leading to major guardrail damage after the trailer’s vehicles inundated I-64.

Taylor County Car shipping truck Accident
A tractor trailer which was delivering several cars form Illinois to Baltimore and was on U.S Route 119 in Taylor County, got stuck in a ditch when the driver turned down a side street to turn around. Luckily no one was injured. The main reason to why such devastating accidents usually happen is due to the sheer size of these tractor-trailers. Most of these trucks weigh over 80,000 pounds, according to the Department of Transportation, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the trailer in this accident weighed even more since it was hauling vehicles.
