Cecil Burnett is dead after being hit by a semi truck on Interstate 24. The semi struck a vehicle that was stopped in the eastbound lane near the Ohio River Bridge. The impact of the collision ejected Cecil Burnett from the vehicle, and he was later pronounced dead on the scene.
Two additional cars were unable to avoid the wrecked vehicles, injuring two other passengers.
Western Kentucky Interstate Trucking Attorney, Daryl T. Dixon, is all too familiar with these types of accidents involving semi trucks and Interstate 24. Immediate action must be taken in order to preserve key evidence that is crucial in any case involving a commercial vehicle. If this evidence is not preserved, it may be extremely difficult to recover adequate compensation on behalf of the injured. Paducah Personal Injury Attorney, Daryl T. Dixon, not only understands the urgency of taking such action, but is prepared to act immediately upon being contacted by a client in need.
