Semi and big rig trucks present one of the greatest dangers on the highways today. Because of the sheer size and power of these monster vehicles, accidents almost always lead to either serious injury or death. Of course any vehicle of significant size is going to be a danger and dump trucks are no exception.

A tragic rear-end collision between an SUV and a semi-truck sent four men to the hospital with severe burn injuries.  Reports from the KHP indicate the SUV suffered a tire blow out on the highway near Wichica.  An approaching semi-truck, unable to determine the SUV's speed, hit the vehicle from behind.  The collision triggered an explosion in the gas line.  The four passengers of the SUV were all hospitalized with severe burn injuries.

As experienced Kansas City Trucking Accident Attorneys, we know how devastating the results can be in an accident involving a semi truck or big rig. We hope the victims in this accident recover quickly from their injuries. Driving a truck is a lot of responsibility and motorists are already full aware of the dangers of driving on the road with them. Any accident like this, where the driver was being so reckless, is a step back for truck drivers.
