Truck traffic is a fact of life and automobile drivers must co-exist on Kentucky roadways with truck drivers. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season everyone, including truck drivers, is typically harried and distracted. Distracted driving may have contributed to a tragic crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer on Christmas Eve in Louisa.
At 6:30 in the morning people are heading to work on Kentucky roads. Trucks are also a significant presence in the early hours and a truck accident can occur. Teachers are among the people heading to work at that early hour. Many of these teachers regard their work as a vocation and make a real difference in the lives of their students. One of those lives was lost in an accident on a recent Monday morning.
