I-81 Truck Accidents In News Today

Truck accidents on the Virginia portion of I-81 are in the news today. One of the tractor trailer accidents involved the transportation of hazardous chemicals. I-81 is well known amongst personal injury lawyers and attorneys for its heavy volume of trucks and commensurately high volume of tractor trailer accidents and wrecks. The interstate is heavily trafficked. Another complicating factor is the geography of Virginia in that area as there are hills aplenty. The hazardous chemical truck accident involved a fatality. The interstate was closed after the wreck and at this time, some 8 hours later, the interstate is still shut down as response crews deal with the hazardous chemical issue. The truck accident happened near Buchanan, which is between Roanoke and Lexington. From the Charlottesville area, it is less than an hour to the location, but today it is impassable. Interestingly, the truck involved was a a tractor hauling two trailers. These double loads make such accidents particularly dangerous and difficult to manage.
