The Orlando Sentinel
reported earlier this weekend on the driver of a jack-knifed semi truck causing
hours of delays on Orlando’s Interstate 4.
As with many
Orlando car accidents, this accident was apparently caused by a combination of speed and wet
Florida roads. After drizzling weather, it’s easy for the roads
to become slick and for drivers to lose control. According to the news
report, that may have been the cause of the accident here. Drivers were
apparently changing lanes ahead of the semi, when the truck driver had
to slow and then lost control on wet roads.
Portions of I-4 were apparently blocked for 5 hours following the incident.
The team of all-women attorneys at
Legally Pink Law remind you to always use caution during inclement weather and to use an
abundance of caution when changing lanes in front of or near a semi truck.
