At 12:45 AM this morning, the driver of the Somerset Food Service tractor-trailer was killed on I-75 in Kentucky when a Chevrolet van crossed the median into the northbound lanes and stopped. The tractor-trailer and a Ford pick-up truck were in northbound lanes and unable to avoid collision according to media reports.

When representing truck drivers injured by the negligence of operators of "four wheelers," we always check to find out if the trucking company’s insurance policy includes uninsured / underinsured motorist (UM) coverage for the truck driver. Some carry UM coverage equal to their liability coverage.
