With two major truck accidents on the Pacific Highway recently, one may cause serious harm to an underwater ecosystem in the Nambucca River. The accident occurred around 3:30 am when the semi-truck was headed south on the highway. The truck driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle and took a nose-dive into the nearby river. The tank was full of petrol and a significant diesel spill has been noted. The Fire Brigade Hazmat crew says that there is serious concern for the spill that can cause damage to nearby oyster leases. They are currently working on containing the spill.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the accident, just damage to the natural environment surrounding the accident. If your property has been affected by a truck accident or a spill of chemicals, do not wait to call an attorney as soon as possible. You may need financial compensation to make up for some of the damages caused by the truck accident, especially if the damage is extensive.
