Losing concentration while driving a big rig can have devastating consequences. A recent chain-reaction crash in Illinois was reportedly caused by the driver of a semi-truck who failed to keep an eye on the traffic ahead. The multi-car accident reportedly occurred in Gurnee on Interstate 94.
According to an accident report by the Illinois State Police, the crash happened in the late afternoon of a recent Monday. Although the investigation is ongoing, preliminary reports indicate that a big rig was westbound on the interstate when the driver failed to slow down when necessary. The truck smashed into the back of one car, causing a chain of rear-end collisions involving a total of six vehicles.
