Multiple Injured In Fishers Box Truck Accident

New York State Trooper Among Those Injured In Fishers Truck Accident on the New York State Thruway

Multiple Injured In Fishers Box Truck Accident

FISHERS, NEW YORK (February 19, 2024) – At least one person was injured in a multi-vehicle collision in Fishers along the New York State Thruway.

Fishers police officials are saying that the collision took place around 4:35 a.m. on Saturday. A box truck hit the back of a New York State Police vehicle.

A semi-truck was also involved in the crash. Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victims. An ambulance took the New York State Trooper to the hospital so that he could be evaluated.

Photos of the accident site showed quite a bit of snow on the roadway.

Liability For New York Semi-Truck Accidents

A large number of collisions are due to inclement weather. According to Market Watch, “over half a million accidents per year are caused by snow, sleet, icy pavement or slushy pavement. Another sobering statistic is that on average, 1,705 Americans die each year due to crashes that happen in wintry weather.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and due to driver error. Drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. To that end drivers must slow down and not travel any faster than the prevailing conditions would allow. Any person that is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
