Certain vehicles are inherently larger and heavier than others, which can make them a great deal more challenging to maneuver. Attempting to reverse across a lane of traffic in a similar vehicle could be dangerous, and collisions involving commercial vehicles can be catastrophic in nature. A recent car accident that occurred under similar circumstances has reportedly claimed the life of a 33-year-old woman in Louisiana.
According to reports, the incident began with a semi carrying an empty log trailer that was attempting to back into a circle on the east side of the road from a southbound lane. While the driver was attempting to maneuver across the road, the semi was struck by another vehicle. The driver of the semi was not injured in the collision, but the driver of the car suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
