Airport officer hit by truck in the District of Columbia

An airport officer was involved in an accident that left him briefly hospitalized after he was hit by a tractor trailer truck in the District of Columbia. The truck itself was being operated for UPS, and it was driving down the Dulles Toll Road when the accident occurred. The reports do not indicate what caused the accident, but they do note that another car was also involved. The report says that the UPS truck hit the second vehicle as well.

The airport officer has now left the hospital. The driver who was behind the wheel of the other vehicle, however, is still in the Fairfax hospital, recovering from his injuries. These injures are not said the be life threatening. The truck driver did not sustain major injuries, according to the police, who said that he is doing fine. They also said that he has been cooperating with them as they sort through the details of the crash to find out what happened.

After the accident, the police had to close the highway down while they carried out their investigation. It was closed overnight before being opened up to traffic once again.

In the wake of a truck accident, those who have been injured may want to see who the police report deems to be responsible for the crash. If the other driver -- whether he is the truck driver or the driver of the second vehicle -- was at fault, the injured people from the crash may be able to sue for monetary compensation. This is done to cover a variety of costs, including medical bills.
