Semi-truck’s failed U-turn attempt leads to fatal crash in Oswego

truck accident lawyer

Truck accidents have the potential to cause devastating injuries. Because of the large size and weight of semi-trucks, it is often the occupants of smaller vehicles who suffer the most severe injuries in a collision. Two people were killed in a recent crash involving a semi-truck on Route 30 and Treasure Drive in Oswego, Illinois.
 
Police said an initial investigation showed the truck got stuck while trying to make a U-turn on Route 30. It was positioned perpendicular to the roadway east of Treasure Drive, blocking both lanes of traffic. A Buick LeSabre that was heading west on Route 30 collided with the truck.
 
The impact killed both of the car’s occupants, who were identified as a 73-year-old male driver and a 26-year-old female passenger. Authorities said they had to be extricated from the vehicle.
 
Gabriel Magee, 30, was driving the semi-truck. He and his passenger did not suffer any injuries in the truck accident. Police cited Magee for attempting the U-turn and stopping in the roadway. The incident remains under investigation.
 
Anyone who has been injured in a truck accident is likely to suffer injuries that require long-term treatment and time away from work.
