Many Trenton residents remember hearing about the tragic school bus accident in Chesterfield last year, which resulted in the death of an 11-year-old girl. Five other students suffered serious injuries in the accident that was caused when a dump truck crashed into the side of the school bus, which then spun out and ultimately collided into a pole.
Tractor-trailers take a terrible toll on others who share the road. Passenger car drivers often stand little chance of avoiding serious injury or death when hit by a truck. Motorcyclists and pedestrians are at great risk as well.
