According to the initial reports from the California Highway Patrol, the fatal accident happened at around 9:30 a.m. at Archibald Avenue near Ontario International Airport.

Fatal Big Rig Accident Investigation is Underway

The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the case further.

Tractor-trailer accidents are more deadly compared to other types of road accidents. It’s mainly because of the considerable size difference of big rig trucks in comparison to other vehicles on the road. A fully loaded big rig needs as much as 20 to 40 percent more stopping distance.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), the fatality rate of big rig trucks has increased by 30 percent since 2009. There were 4,102 traffic fatalities involving a big rig in 2017 alone. Tractor-trailer accidents are caused by a variety of factors, such as loss of control of the truck, a tire blowout, a disabling or non-disabling vehicle failure, excessive speed, lane drifting, and improper truck maneuvering, and driver fatigue.

When facing tractor-trailer crash cases like this, it’s essential to have an experienced San Bernardino wrongful death lawyer specializing in fatal tractor-trailer accidents to conduct an independent investigation. During the independent investigation, all possible contributing factors such as road conditions, signage visibility, and road lighting will bee considered and thoroughly examined by the wrongful death attorney.
