Minnesota citizens expect commercial vehicles to be operated by qualified and careful drivers. When a heavy truck is involved in an accident resulting in serious injury or death, questions arise as to the training, experience and caution used by the operator. Recently, a truck accident between a tractor-tanker and a pedestrian caused the death of a 20-year- old man.
The wreck occurred on October 14, 2016. Police report that a tractor-tanker truck driven by a 56-year-old man was making a turn on local roads at around 6:35 a.m. when it hit the pedestrian. The 20-year-old was walking home from an early morning shift at a local restaurant when the accident occurred.
