Five Injured In Pittsford FedEx Truck Accident

PITTSFORD, NEW YORK (May 1, 2024) – At least five people, including an infant, were injured in a Pittsford FedEx semi-truck accident along Interstate 90 by Exit 45.

Pittsford police officials are saying that the collision took place around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. A FedEx truck was traveling down the road when it rolled over a bridge.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Pittsford FedEx Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks account for a relatively small portion of the vehicles on the roadway. But they are involved in a disproportionate number of traffic fatalities. According to the IIHS, “A total of 4,714 people died in large truck crashes in 2021, a 17 percent increase compared with 2020. Sixteen percent of these deaths were truck occupants, 68 percent were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists.” There are a number of common causes of truck accidents.

  • Speeding
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions
  • Vehicle system failures

Depending on the facts of any case, the company that manufactured a truck could be liable for a collision. Truck companies have a legal responsibility to create products that are reasonably safe. They must also warn about the non-obvious dangers associated with the use of their products. A number of truck accidents are caused by faulty tires. It is important that certain steps are taken after any truck accent.

  • Eyewitnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • The police report for the collision should be examined.
  • An experienced truck accident attorney should be contacted.
