Two people were killed in a crash involving a dump truck and another vehicle on Route 16, also known as Mendon Street, in Uxbridge on Wednesdsay, the Worcester District Attorney’s office said.

The district attorney’s office said the victims of the crash were both drivers.

Authorities received a report of the crash on Route 16 shortly before 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

Police say a sedan was traveling westbound when it struck a dump truck traveling eastbound.

Authorities said the dump truck and the other vehicle were the only vehicles involved in the fatal accident.

No other details were provided regarding the crash or the identity of the victims, however, authorities said both victims were driving.

Uxbridge police said Route 16 in the area of Theresa Drive up to Blackstone Street may be closed for the next few hours.

It’s free to check your car and the car you’re thinking about buying. Pro tip: Used cars are allowed to be sold with open recalls on them!

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Over the past few months, you may have put off everything from home repairs to doctor’s appointments. Maybe an important safety recall for your car slipped through the cracks. As Consumer Reports explains, now is the time to safely and promptly get the free fixes your recalled car needs.

How do you know if your car has been recalled in the first place? Car companies are required to notify owners by mail, but sometimes they don’t reach the second or third owner. So check the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for open recalls on your car.

Tens of millions of cars are recalled every year to correct flaws including software glitches, headlight problems and leaks that can cause fires.

Every recall is important and should be taken seriously. If the safety defect is serious enough, you may be advised not to drive the car until it’s fixed.

The good news is that in almost every case, recall repairs are free. But it’s your responsibility to get them done.

Also, keep in mind that you’re not entitled to a rental car or a loaner while your car is being repaired. 

Sometimes a dealership or an automaker will offer one as a courtesy, though it’s not required by law.

Another important thing to note is that legally, cars can be sold even if they have an open recall. So, if you’re buying a used car, it’s especially important to run the vehicle identification number (VIN) through a recall database to be aware of any recalls that need your attention.

If you’re worried about missing a recall, you can sign up for Consumer Reports’ free car recall tracker to receive an email notification when one is issued for your vehicle.

A week after a serious crash closed the Brent Spence Bridge to traffic, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray scheduled a news briefing to update on the status of repairs to the major commuter and freight corridor that cuts through the Tri-State.

Gray scheduled those remarks to begin Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.

The two-vehicle crash happened just after 6 p.m. Monday, according to department spokesperson Sgt. Kameron Lee.

Troopers had been in the area prior to the incident conducting traffic control and directing all northbound traffic on Route 85 into the right lane.

As cars were moving to the right, the driver of a blue Ford F-150 began to pass traffic on the left and, in doing so, struck the back of a trooper’s patrol vehicle.

The trooper had been parked in the median with the emergency lights on at the time of the collision, said Lee.

Both the trooper and the driver of the Ford pickup were transported to local hospitals with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Lee said.

Impairment is being investigated as a factor in this crash, said Lee.

The Arizona Department of Transportation reported that the crash closed Route 85 northbound at milepost 154, near the I-10.

All northbound traffic is being directed to exit at Broadway Road, and there is no estimated time to reopen the lanes.

More updates will be made available as the investigation continues.

The State Patrol on Monday continued to look for the driver of a semitrailer truck who may have stopped in the traffic lanes on westbound Interstate 94 near Monticello last week to clear snow from his windshield moments before a fiery pileup that involved 29 vehicles.

Nobody was killed, but nine people were hurt in the chain-reaction crash that happened about 9:10 a.m. Thursday at the exit to County Roads 18 and 39, when a quick intense burst of snow made driving treacherous.

Investigators are still piecing together what led to the mishap, which closed the freeway for nearly 10 hours. But “it appears the [truck’s] nonemergency stop may have played a role in starting the chain of events in the crash,” the State Patrol said.

Ryan Peter, of Monticello, was right behind the truck, with a white cab and trailer, when it stopped in the right traffic lane. He said he assumed there had been a crash since the roads had turned to glaze ice. As he and a minivan slowed, they started to slide at a point where the road curved and sloped downhill.

“I was nervous, and scared,” he said, noting that other traffic was coming up behind him. “My cousin was killed for the same thing. A semi rear-ended her.”

Peter was able to maneuver into the left lane and pass the motionless semitrailer truck, and said he was aghast at what he saw. The driver had his cab door open and was leaning out to remove snow from the windshield.

“He probably could not see,” Peter said. “It was crazy. He could have pulled off another 20 to 30 feet [to the right].”

Peter used his cellphone to grab some video as he continued on, seconds before the carnage began. He said he didn’t know about the crash until he got home a few minutes later and heard the sirens. By then, the semitrailer truck had left the scene.

Heavy black smoke billowed into the air for hours after the crash that involved at least 15 semitrailer trucks and dozens of mangled vehicles, some pinned up against a concrete median. A truck carrying tractor tires burst into flames, and the fire spread to a number of nearby vehicles, patrol said.

A backhoe was brought in to help remove burned vehicles, tires and other debris.

Several drivers who were involved in the crash or may have seen it left the scene before first responders arrived, Shank said. The semitrailer truck had few identifying features and no name on the side. Shank said he’s hoping someone saw something to help investigators find the truck and driver in question.

“If you witnessed the crash or have any information regarding the semi or its driver, please reach out to the patrol,” Shank said.

A 47-year-old Rhode Island man who ran from a truck after getting into an altercation with the driver was struck and killed by a vehicle Saturday in Swansea.

Just before 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Massachusetts State Police troopers responded to a report that a pedestrian had been struck by a truck on Interstate 195 in Swansea.

“Preliminary investigation by responding troopers indicates that a 47-year-old Pawtucket, R.I., man, who was a passenger in a 2003 Dodge Ram, became involved in an altercation with the driver,” state police said.

The truck was being driven by a 51-year-old Providence man and heading westbound on I-195, state police said.

The driver pulled into the westbound breakdown lane and the passenger got it.

“The passenger then ran across all three westbound lanes and onto the eastbound side, where he was struck by a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado pickup operated by a 21-year-old Lincoln, R.I., man,” authorities said.

Troopers found the victim in the road and performed CPR. He died at the scene.

Both drivers remained at the scene following the crash. The Ram had an additional passenger, a 33-year-old Providence man. There were no other injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.

Update, 4:30 p.m. Thursday:

A woman has died after a delivery truck ran a stop sign and crashed into her SUV, officials said.

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Tim Myers told The Eagle on Thursday that Linda Keller died after being hurt in a crash Monday afternoon in the northwest part of the county. She was 60 years old and from Cheney.

A sheriff’s office accident report states that Keller was eastbound on 21st Street as Ray Crook was northbound on 247th Street West. Crook’s vehicle “ran the stop sign” and struck the passenger side of Keller’s vehicle.

Keller was taken to Ascension Via Christi St. Francis hospital in critical condition. Crook was taken to the same hospital in serious condition.

Photos from the scene showed a Cintas box truck had caught fire during the wreck.

No citations have been issued and the crash remains under investigation, Myers said.

Original story:

At least two people were hurt and taken to a hospital after a crash Monday afternoon in northwest Sedgwick County.

Emergency crews were called at around 1:30 p.m. to an injury accident at 21st Street North and 247th Street West, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. One patient was reported to be in critical condition, and a second was in serious condition.

The intersection, which is northwest of Goddard, is blocked. The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the wreck.

Overview

FMCSA’s 2019 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics highlights the Agency’s role in collecting and analyzing data on large trucks and buses. Intended as a compact reference, it is a compilation of statistics from the overall state of the industry to enforcement activity, details on traffic violations and other incidents, the costs of crashes, and more. These data are used in support of our mission to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries. The Pocket Guide can serve as a valuable, compact resource for industry representatives, Federal agencies, and other individuals interested in motor carrier safety regulations and performance data. It will be updated periodically in the future as new data are collected and analyzed. Previous versions of the Pocket Guide can be found in the archives section on this page.  

The Pocket Guide incorporates and replaces the one-page data summaries, “Commercial Motor Vehicle Facts,” published occasionally over the past 10 years. Links to those summaries are provided below:
