On January 11, 2018, an accident between several vehicles on Interstate 69 caused an 18-wheeler to drive off the overpass at University Boulevard and land on a car on the feeder road below. Investigators believe the incident was caused by the truck driver jack-knifing to avoid another driver and, consequently, flipping off the overpass onto the frontage road at University.
On July 6th in northern New York, two cars skidded underneath a milk tanker truck that had jackknifed on Interstate 81. The truck was attempting to avoid hitting a deer when it lost control. Tragically, this incident resulted in the loss of four lives, including a doctor that was in a stalled ambulance on the interstate. This is just one of many examples of tractor-trailer accidents that involve passenger vehicles.
