California car accidents: Multi-vehicle crash sends 2 to hospital

All drivers must remain vigilant at all times while traveling on California roadways. However, it is especially important that drivers of tractor-trailers are alert while driving. Because of their larger size, car accidents involving such vehicles can easily have serious consequences. Unfortunately, two people were recently seriously injured in a multi-vehicle accident involving three tractor-trailers and a sports utility vehicle.

The incident happened just before 6 a.m. on a day in early March. According to reports, a westbound tractor-trailer driven by a 63-year-old man crossed over into oncoming traffic, side-swiping an eastbound tractor-trailer. The second tractor-trailer ultimately crossed into westbound traffic, striking the third tractor-trailer involved in the collision.

The truck police believe caused the initial impact continued on the wrong side of the road where it allegedly struck an oncoming sports utility vehicle. The 52-year-old driver and his 48-year-old passenger both suffered major injuries in the collision. A dog in the SUV died. Officials with the California Highway Patrol claim that they do not believe that drugs or alcohol were factors, but the incident remains under investigation.

Unfortunately, two people are left in the hospital, likely needing care that will result in stacks of medical bills. Due to the nature of their injuries, they may also be forced to miss work for a significant amount of time. Because car accidents can quickly lead to financial instability, many victims choose to explore their legal options, potentially resulting in the decision to file a personal injury lawsuit against the parties they believe to be responsible. In a situation involving a commercial vehicle, both the driver and the driver's employer could hold some responsibility.
