Victim Identified As Erin Christine Queens, A 55-Year-Old Truck Driver From Salem, WV

The tragic accident occurred around 7PM on Monday, December 2nd at a Pilot Travel Stop off I-95.

Queens had reportedly exited her truck and was walking behind another tractor-trailer when it began backing away from a pump. The tractor-trailer knocked Queens to the ground and then ran her over. When other bystanders instructed the driver of the tractor-trailer that they had hit something, they proceeded to drive forward and run over Queens once more.

Virginia State emergency crews responded to the accident and treated the victim at the scene before transporting her to Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center in nearby Emporia. She would later succumb to her injuries.

At this time, the Virginia State Police Department indicated that alcohol was not believed to have been involved, and that charges had not been filed.

A subscriber to Legal Herald and experienced truck accident attorney, Kevin Biniazin offered the following insight for victims of truck accident injuries and their loved ones:

“Something as unexpected as a death due to a truck accident is the kind of event that quickly changes the lives of those who are left grieving.

When each one of us heads out on the road, we are fully expecting to make it home safe and sound. If this doesn’t happen, it is completely understandable for the loved ones who are left behind to want to seek justice.

When a truck accident leads to a death because of a driver’s negligence, those who suffer injuries or the family of a deceased victim have the right to pursue a compensation via a truck accident lawsuit.

By going down this legal path, the plaintiffs (family or other dependents) can fight for a compensation that covers funeral and burial costs as well as other damages, such as loss of companionship or income, which can also result from these regrettable incidents.

It is absolutely vital for victims to seek out the right legal counsel for them.

An experienced truck accident lawyer should always be able to demonstrate past successes and even refer previous clients. Most importantly, they should be able to analyze a client’s potential case, lay out all of the options on the table, and then tirelessly defend the rights of the victims in a court of law.”
