A milk truck overturned on Anderson Road near Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga, New York, narling traffic for hours. We have handled milk truck accidents and other tanker truck crashes as truck accident attorneys.The handling of a milk truck requires special care as the milk can move significantly, for instance move forward with great force if brakes are applied to suddenly. Likewise, sudden turns or other movements can cause tremendous shifts in the center of gravity of the trailer portion of the big rig.
Fortunately, no other vehicles were beside the tanker truck when it flipped onto its side spilling milk and diesel fuel. Cheektowaga is a suburb of Buffalo, New York, close to a busy I 90 exit where truckers frequently stop to get gas at Jim’s Truck Stop before crossing the Peace Bridge into Fort Erie,Ontario, Canada.
