Interstate 44 in Lebanon, Missouri, was the site of a tragic road accident in which a FedEx truck collided with a pickup truck before ricocheting off of the left side of the roadway, across the median, striking a Jeep Renegade travelling in the opposite direction. Three family members were in the Jeep. A 13-year-old died from her injuries and another passenger was seriously injured and hospitalized. Troopers reported that the 2017 Freightliner driven by a woman from Brooklyn, New York, “lost control and struck’’ the pickup truck, a Chevy Silverado. Both vehicles had been driving in the same direction on I-44. The tractor trailer then veered over the median, striking the oncoming Jeep.

A Florida man was severely injured when his motorcycle was hit by a FedEx truck. The report from the Florida Highway Patrol said the FedEx driver “failed to yield the right of way” and turned in front of the motorcyclist, who was flown to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola.1
A tragic accident caused by a company driver in California killed 10 people and severely injured several others. Eight bus passengers died, 5 students and 3 chaperones. Both drivers also died. Dozens of people were injured, suffering severe burns, broken bones and other injuries. The investigation found that 7 of the victims died of asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation, 2 died of multiple traumas from the impact of the collision, and one died after being severely burned.
“We don’t see many accident deaths caused by smoke inhalation,” said attorney Eric Hageman. “This tragedy was made worse because the explosion and fire prevented rescuers from quickly getting all of the passengers out of the bus.”
A father has filed a lawsuit against Federal Express, alleging his son was killed by one of the company’s trucks. The young man was riding his bicycle out of his father’s driveway when he was run over by the truck and dragged 50 feet.2 The grieving father told WPTV, “He was my baby. My love. My heart. Now, if I want to visit my heart I go to the graveyard to see him.”
“I ride my bicycle to work every day that I can,” said attorney Fred Pritzker, “I have had many close calls and use my experience as both a cyclist and attorney to win cases and hold drivers and trucking companies accountable for wrongful death.”
Two people suffered critical injuries when a FedEx semi truck hauling 2 trailers hit a car on I-40 east of downtown Nashville.3 The initial police investigation found evidence that the car was stopped in a lane of traffic when it was rear ended by the semi truck. The driver and passenger of the car were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
“In most cases, a semi truck driver who hits a car from behind is at fault,” said Eric Hageman, one of our lead attorneys for these cases.
