Hollywood Swinging Turns

When trucks such as big rigs turn, the tractor-trailer on the truck often swings wide and can crush or collide with any vehicle or pedestrian who happens to be in the way. Motorists are expected to use extra caution when driving around trucks to prevent these types of accidents and truck drivers are expected to check their blind spots to prevent these types of squeeze play truck accidents in Hollywood.

Injuries Common in Wide Turn and Squeeze Play Accidents

Wide turn accidents tend to cause catastrophic injuries because in these types of collisions a smaller vehicle is crushed between a larger big rig and the curb or another obstacle. The smaller car and its occupants may be crushed or part of the car may even be sheared off with the force of the crash. This type of accident often leads to:

  • Fatalities
  • Head trauma
  • Fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Disfiguration
  • Amputation
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
