Even though the accident involved in the following story didn't occur here in Connecticut, the wreck still holds a valuable lesson -- legally speaking -- for people who are victims of truck accidents. The wreck in question involves a truck that had some loose cargo. It fell off of the truck bed and spilled into the road, becoming entangled in the wreck that the truck was inevitably involved in.
Details are a little sparse about this wreck, but the main point is not lost: cargo plays a major part in some truck accidents. In some cases, the cargo causes the actual accident. In other cases, the truck crashes because of the cargo, may it be due to an imbalanced load or cargo that exceeds the vehicle's maximum carrying capacity.
