Fatal Crashes in Roanoke
Nearly 80 victims were killed in tractor-trailer accidents in Virginia in 2019 and several hundred more suffered serious injuries. When the drastic size difference between tractor-trailers and any other motor vehicle is taken into consideration, it isn’t surprising to discover that the vast majority of injuries and fatalities did not involve the tractor-trailer occupants, but rather the occupants of the smaller vehicle.
