Toledo area tractor-trailer crash at I-75/I-280 split
Southbound I-75 was closed for a crash just before noon today between the Ottawa River Road exit and I-280. City crews were called to the crash to clean fuel that spilled. Paramedics and police responded to the scene. Injuries were reported, but no names or details have yet been released.
I have handled several truck crashes on I-75, including a recent one in this area. I hope that everybody who was injured recovers quickly. I hope that if there are permanent injuries, the families of those injured find a law firm that understands the importance of moving quickly to preserve “black box” ECM data on the truck, speak with motor carrier enforcement officers to make sure skid and yaw marks were photographed and slack on the brakes checked, news footage obtained, and all other facts and evidence collected in order to prove fault and help the injured with medical bills and future needs.
