Flying Objects on Our Highways
Every year on Minnesota highways, motorists or bystanders are injured by debris falling from vehicles.
A recent incident occurred in Winona when the failure to secure a load of chicken skimmings caused a slippery mess on Winona roads. This mess was found to be the cause of several car accidents. The responsible parties in that case were identified and ticketed for failure to secure a load properly.
In many other incidents, the at-fault driver is never identified. Injured victims from this type of negligence must rely on their own uninsured motorist insurance to cover their losses in those situations. Remember that most injuries involving the use or maintenance of a motor vehicle are covered by your own no-fault automobile insurance.
