Waltham, MA — Police say a semi-truck that dumped a load of concrete beams onto the road in Waltham, Massachusetts, will be cited for carrying an unsecure load.
On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Vinod George was driving down Trapelo road when a semi-truck coming off of Interstate 95 began to lose a load on heavy concrete breams it was carrying. George was able to hit his brakes and bring his Honda SUV. He escaped the accident with only minor injuries.
No other injuries were reported in conjunction with the accident. Police are continuing to investigate.
Scene of the Accident
In an accident like this, you’re never going to have to look very far to see who’s going to be held liable. Making sure that the big, heavy, dangerous concrete beams you’re carrying to securely tied down and not going anywhere seems like a no-brainer. The only thing that may have an effect on that is who was actually responsible for loading the truck. If the driver had anything to do with it, then he and the trucking company he works for are going to be responsible. If a third party was responsible for loading the truck, which is a definite possibility, then they may find themselves liable for what happened. A little more investigating will be needed before we can know for sure.
