These reports say there were only minor injuries, and I certainly hope that's true. The fact of the matter is preliminary news reports aren't the best source for how serious an injury truly is. I had a case not long ago where a commercial vehicle driver had "minor" back pain. Days after he got the all clear, he could barely move due to excruciating pain. Further tests revealed he had a ruptured disk that needed surgery. Pretty far from minor. Again, I hope that didn't happen here, but it's one of the reasons why I always take a truck wreck like this seriously no matter what injuries are in the reports.
