Semi Truck Strikes House in Milwaukee
After coming home after a long day, many people like to sit in their living room and engage in a relaxing activity. For some this relaxing activity may be to watch some television, talk to family members or read a book. A Milwaukee woman was about to do just that when something very unexpected and frightening happened.
A Milwaukee woman had just sat down in her living with plans to have a snack and watch television, when a semi truck crashed into the side of her home. The impact of the collision took out the wall of the woman’s house and caused significant damage to her property. The collision also caused some injuries to the woman, but thankfully she did not sustain any serious injuries or broken bones.
The driver of the semi truck was transported to the hospital following the collision for treatment of his injuries. He received treatment for his injuries and has since been released from the hospital.
Law enforcement officials are investigating the accident, and believe the accident to be connected with drowsy driving. Law enforcement officials believe that the driver of the semi truck may have fallen asleep at the wheel, which caused him to veer off the roadway and into the house.
Drowsy driving is incredibly dangerous and leads to a greater likelihood of being involved in a car accident. Drowsy driving can lead to laspes in attention, which can cause car accidents because the driver needs to be paying attention to the road at all times. If you are feeling tired, you should not get behind the wheel of a car. If you begin to feel tired while driving, you should pull over in an area where it is safe to do so, and rest until you are able to drive again. By ensuring that we do not drive while drowsy, we can make the roadways safer for everyone.
