Truck explosion reminds companies of the importance of truck insurance

A recent truck explosion in Pennsylvania serves as an unfortunate reminder of the importance of wholesale commercial trucking company insurance.

Carlsbad, United States - May 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

A recent truck explosion in Pennsylvania serves as an unfortunate reminder of the importance of wholesale commercial trucking company insurance. “On the morning of Wednesday, May 9th, trucker Stephen Miller died as a result of a fiery acetylene tank explosion in the back of the truck he was driving,” said an Insurance Truck company spokesperson. “Unfortunate incidents such as these remind trucking and logistics companies how critical it is to have wholesale truck insurance for all of their vehicles to protect their cargo, their capital, and their people.”

In the case of the recent Ono, PA, explosion, it’s hoped that the trucking company had seen the value in wholesale truck insurance before the accident so that they can now lean on that reassurance in such an unfavorable circumstance. While insurance could never replace the loss of a life, it can help protect the precious people, vehicles, and freight should such an incident occur.

Insurance Truck utilizes quoting software that helps those looking for Auto Liability and MTC coverage quotes. For commercial trucking companies, the most important thing is MTC, or Motor Truck Cargo coverage. This plan covers liability for damage to cargo that is caused by fire, collision, striking, or accidental dumping. MTC coverage includes the cost of removing debris or lost cargo, recovery of any pollutants, and prevention of further cargo lost. If the company that suffered the explosion in Pennsylvania had MTC coverage, at least the gas, air tanks, and welding equipment in the truck will be covered by insurance.

While the cargo is a precious commodity, there is nothing more precious than human life. The other product that Insurance Truck offers, auto liability insurance, protects the vehicle and the driver from claims or injuries on the road in the event of an accident. This may have protected Miller and his family after the accident.

While no one likes to think about the possibility of accidents, it’s important to be prepared for them. Become a member of Insurance Truck and get an instant quote today to minimize risk and protect what matters.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — On a spring evening in eastern Pennsylvania, upon a bluff overlooking the Lehigh Valley, a carnival of baseball and pork products is at hand. From loudspeakers, swine-like sounds reverberate. Vendors roam the stands in clothing festooned with outsized strips of bacon.

A look at the churches and hotels targeted in Sri Lanka

Apr 23, 2019

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Several near-simultaneous blasts tore through three churches and three luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, the bloodiest outbreak of violence in the South Asian country since civil war ended a decade ago. No one has claimed responsibility. Since the decades-long conflict between the majority Sinhalese and minority Tamils ended in 2009 a religious divide has taken hold. Buddhist nationalists accuse Muslims of attacking Buddhist shrines and trying to recruit Buddhist children, which Muslims deny. Here is a look at the sites targeted in the blasts. ___ CHURCHES St. Anthony's Shrine: This Roman Catholic church,...

Jimmy Page reflects on Led Zeppelin's legacy and its sound

Apr 23, 2019

NEW YORK — When Jimmy Page was a young student, he had already developed such an inseparable relationship with his guitar that school officials would often confiscate it. "It would be given back at the end of the day. And this was quite repetitive," Page said. That dedication worked out pretty well for Page, who took Led Zeppelin to the zenith as one of the most powerful outfits in rock history. Now some of the instruments that he used to create that Zeppelin sound are on display at an exhibition called "Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll" at...

Ai Weiwei remembers disappearance of 43 Mexican students

Apr 23, 2019

MEXICO CITY — Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's interest in studying human rights around the world led to his meeting with relatives of the 43 college students who disappeared in southern Mexico in 2014. That encounter led, in turn, to his new exhibit in Mexico's capital.
