Anyone who has ever been a victim in a personal injury accident knows the pain and hardship that such an event can cause. Physical harm is easy to identify: the bruises, cuts and broken bones speak for themselves. But what about other injuries that do not appear to the naked eye? The mental and emotional state of a person who has been involved in a truck accident can be extremely fragile. Constant anxiety and fear of driving is commonplace for truck accident victims.

Holiday traffic is something that everyone dreads. When Thanksgiving week rolls around, there is a sense of urgency in the air. People anticipate and plan out their routes home from work, knowing full well the chaos that awaits them on state highways. Even if things go as planned, the travel times can be outrageously long. What normally takes you 45 minutes to travel could take as long as two hours. But when things occur unexpectedly during holiday rush hour, there is an added concern. While most people view a car accident during this time as a further delay in their commute, the truth is that there is a greater risk for severe injury for those involved.
On Tuesday, November 25, 2014, the people of Massachusetts were expecting a large snowstorm prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. As a result, the Tuesday evening traffic was even slower than usual. But in Auburn, MA that night, an accident took place that made the congestion even worse. On the westbound side of the Mass Turnpike, I-90, a tanker truck flipped onto its side and blocked one of the travel lanes. The rollover crash was reported to the Massachusetts State Police around 4:00 pm that evening. Thirty-five minutes later, traffic had backed up nearly ten miles.
Police have not yet released the cause of the accident, nor the names of the drivers involved. According to one state trooper on the scene, there was a second car involved in the rollover. Due to the nature of the accident and the size of the tanker, injuries to the drivers are assumed, but not yet confirmed.
