Logging Truck Accidents
You’ve no doubt seen logging trucks loaded with trees and logs as you drive down any of the major highways in Georgia. Because the logging and paper industry is an important part of the Georgia economy, logging truck accidents are bound to happen.
When these overloaded trucks go out of control, unmarked tree trunks and flying debris can cause serious accidents to those driving or riding in other vehicles or to pedestrians walking on the roadways.
Any other driver on the road is at risk when one of these logging truck accidents occurs.
