The last thing on your mind when you are out on the highway is that you need to worry about stalled out vehicles or someone else’s negligence causing you harm. Unfortunately, we know that vehicle crashes are a reality, especially in and around crowded metropolitan areas. Recently, a man was killed when he crashed his sedan into the back of a disabled large truck that was stopped in the center devide of Interstate 5.

The crash happened when a driver hit the right rear of a large truck that belonged to a uniform and linen supply company. There were two employees in the truck at the time of the crash and they say they had pulled over due to a flat tire. At the Simpson Law Group, we are here to help when you need a San Diego truck accident attorney.

The Dangers Of The Roadway

The employees of the company whose truck was hit say that they were waiting for a tow truck to come and get their vehicle off the freeway when the crash happened. Neither of them was injured in the crash.

When it comes to crashes involving larger commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, every aspect of the incident will be examined. Witnesses say that the vehicle that hit the truck was speeding, but would the crash have ever happened if they had not had tire problems?

When it comes to commercial vehicles, particularly large trucks, it is important that the company regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles to ensure they are roadworthy. One of the main causes of truck crashes is a failure of some part of the vehicle that causes the driver to lose control or stall out on the highway.

We also know that driver error can cause major crashes. Under no circumstances that a truck driver ever operate their vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol or while distracted by their phones or other devices.

Think about how many large trucks operate in and around the city each day. They are vital to our economy and ensure that we have the goods we need on a daily basis. When they are in an accident with a regular passenger vehicle. In the crash discussed above, one witness described the scene when he said, “I heard a large explosion…I could see debris everywhere. It looked like a war zone – parts of the car everywhere just exploded.”
