Montana woman killed in semi truck accident

A collision between a passenger car and a semi truck can have dire results for the occupants of the car. A tractor trailer can crush the average automobile in a wreck. In addition, when a semi truck is involved in an accident, the forces involved are so great that the initial collision often triggers a chain reaction involving other vehicles. This appears to be what happened in a violent truck accident that claimed the life of a 21-year-old Montana woman recently.

Truck accident victims push for tougher laws

It may surprise some to learn that Montana is the third worst state in the union in terms of truck crash fatalities. The top two are North Dakota and Wyoming. Nationally, over 4,000 people die every year in accidents involving heavy semi trucks. Recently a group of truck accident victims went to Washington, D.C. to push for stronger federal truck safety legislation.

Recent estimates by the U.S. Geological Survey indicate that the Bakken Shale - the oil-rich geological formation that underlies much of North Dakota and reaches into Montana - contains far more oil than previously thought. The USGS now believes the Bakken contains twice as much oil, and three times as much natural gas, as their previous estimates.
