I was sent the link to this crash which took place yesterday near Greensboro, North Carolina. A pick-up was entering the expressway, didn’t “negotiate the exit and crashed into the back of a disabled tractor-trailer in the median.”
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. The driver of the pick-up (F-350) died. The photos appear to indicate an underride crash with Passenger Compartment Intrusion (PCI).
Would a stronger underride guard have saved his life?
If underride caused his death, the manufacturer of the truck is not likely to be held responsible.
