Additionally, automobile accidents can have serious consequences. Some of the potential consequences from an automobile accident include property damage, injuries, and even fatalities. Because of this, it is important that drivers practice safe driving every time that they get behind the wheel. Recently, a dump truck struck an overpass on Interstate 94.
The incident occurred on Monday, January 11th. It occurred on eastbound I-94 at the Stadium Interchange located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
