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.

NEW YORK — The latest on developments in financial markets (all times local): 4 p.m. Stocks closed mostly lower on Wall Street, but energy companies rose sharply as the price of crude oil shot higher. Real estate and industrial companies as well as banks fell broadly on Monday. Simon Property Group lost 2.4% and Boeing fell 1.3%.

WASHINGTON — Taking part in one of the oldest White House traditions, President Donald Trump blew a whistle and sent spoon-wielding kids into a frenzy Monday as they used the wooden utensils to coax hard-boiled eggs to the finish line during the annual Easter Egg Roll. "This is 141 years that we've been doing this," Trump said, addressing the crowd from the Truman Balcony, where he was joined by first lady Melania Trump before they came downstairs to mingle with guests on the South Lawn. "I don't remember the first one," Trump joked of the tradition that began in 1878...
