Two people were injured after a three-vehicle traffic collision on a highway in Victorville on Thursday morning, September 10.
The multi-vehicle collision took place on Highway 395 at Dos Palmas Road at approximately 8:38 a.m. A tractor-trailer heading south on Highway 395 ran a red light and later struck a Nissa truck and a van heading eastbound on Dos Palmas Road.
Due to the severity of the impact, the tractor-trailer rolled over and landed on its side. As a result, 500 gallons of Gatorade was spilled onto the roadway. The driver of the tractor-trailer was rushed to an area hospital with minor injuries. The Nissan truck operator sustained significant injuries from the crash; she was hospitalized at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.
Multi-Vehicle Collision Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently investigating the case. When three or more cars collide on the roadway, it is considered a multi-vehicle collision. This type of car accident is commonly caused by a “chain reaction,” when one car bumps into another, which causes the other to hit the next vehicle.
Multi-vehicle collisions are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. It can be quite challenging to pinpoint liability during a multi-vehicle collision investigation, so it is essential to hire an experienced San Bernardino County personal injury attorney to conduct an independent investigation. Attorneys can re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain the responsible party’s phone and texting records.
