Early Reports Suggest Big Rig Driver May Have Lost Control
A multivehicle accident on Interstate 30 claimed the lives of all three drivers involved. Fox News reports that the accident occurred in the early morning hours, when a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle that were traveling on the interstate crossed over the median and into the path of a second semi-truck. Authorities haven’t yet determined who was at fault, and they are still in the process of investigating the crash, which was catastrophic enough to shut down the interstate for over 12 hours.
Early reports indicate that the driver of the first semi-truck, which was traveling on westbound I-30 just before the accident occurred, lost control of his big rig and drifted to the left. This caused the semi to collide with the passenger vehicle and push it toward the median. After the highway cable guards apparently failed, the big rig and the passenger car both crossed over onto eastbound I-30, where they collided with the other semi-truck.
How a Big Rig Crash Attorney Can Help
Truck drivers and trucking companies have a duty to make sure that they operate and maintain their vehicles in a safe manner. If this duty is not fulfilled, a semi-truck accident may occur, and the truck driver or trucking company can be held liable for injuries that may result.
Drivers or passengers who are injured in a semi-truck accident may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Scarring and disfigurement
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
