One person was injured in an Oakwood semi-truck accident on Monday afternoon, December 28th. The Oakwood Police Department said the crash happened on I-271 N at Broadway Avenue when a semi-truck slammed into a car stopped on the roadway to help a broken down semi.
The heavy-duty vehicle went on to crash into a wall nearby. The vehicle's driver was unscathed, but the motorist who stopped for assistance wasn't so fortunate.
The police said the male driver sustained some injuries, and medics took him to a local hospital for treatment. The severity of his condition is still unknown. The OPD commenced an investigation into the specifics of the accident. The affected roadway was closed down for about 3 hours after the Oakwood semi-truck accident.

While these crashes are unplanned, they are mostly caused by negligent drivers who disregard traffic signs and drive above the maximum recommended speed limit. Hardly do car wreck victims come out of crashes unscathed.
