According to News4Jax.com, at least six people were killed in two separate accidents on Interstate 95 in St. Johns and Flagler County. Officials are still assessing damage to the highway from the second, fiery crash involving 11 vehicles that burned for hours.

In 2012, the occupants of other vehicles accounted for 73 percent of the fatalities in accidents involving large trucks, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Anytime a motor vehicle accident involves a large commercial truck, there is the potential for wide spread destruction. For that reason, truck drivers, companies and manufacturers must be extremely diligent as far as safety is concerned, because one mistake on their part could lead to deadly consequences for the driver and/or one or several other motorists. On July 20, a University of Florida student was killed when the vehicle she was in was hit by a tractor-trailer truck. According to The Independent Florida Alligator, the accident happened after midnight on the Florida Turnpike near Wildwood. The victim was driving a Ford Explorer with four other friends en route to Orlando to visit one of their friends. Reportedly, at mile marker 304, the tractor-trailer...
