One Injured in Box Truck Accident in Johns Creek, Georgia


JOHNS CREEK, GA — One person was seriously injured in an accident with a box truck in Johns Creek, Georgia on Thursday, November 20th, 2014. The article from CBS 46 said that the crash happened around 1:10 Thursday afternoon.

Police have said that they have reason to believe one person was hurt in a box truck accident in front of Sunrise at Ivey Ridge senior living facility at 2950 Old Alabama Road. Authorities believe the woman was struck by a box truck in the parking lot.

The woman was taken by EMS to a nearby hospital in a helicopter where she was last reported in critical condition.

The investigation is currently ongoing at this time.

Scene of the Accident

Commentary:

Now, there may be details missing from the report, but the fact that this accident took place in a parking lot does not bode well for the truck driver or the company behind them. Places like parking lots, sidewalks, biking/pedestrian lanes, and marked crosswalks are places where people on foot are protected by the law in most circumstances. Furthermore, how fast was the truck driver going in a parking lot that he couldn’t stop on a dime? Any time I’m in a parking lot, my vehicle is at a nearly idle roll so I can stop, or at least maneuver quickly in the event a pedestrian pops out from between two cars unexpectedly. Considering I’m not a trained driver like the driver of this truck, why were they not being as cautious? Ultimately the trucking company is facing some tough questions, as they should after an accident as preventable as this one seems to be.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
