Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on I-80 in Bloomsburg

While there isn't much information about what happened here, certain details are already quite concerning. A truck hitting a disabled vehicle raises some red flags that remind me of cases I handled in the past involving irresponsible drivers.

Bloomsburg, PA Semi-Truck Accident I-80 at Buckhorn

In one, for example, a truck driver hit a disabled car that was well lit and clearly visible because the truck driver was too busy watching shows on his tablet. The trucking company tried to claim that the victim's car was too dark to see, but we were able to dig up video evidence that countered this.

I'm not saying that's what happened here, of course, and investigations could actually show that the disabled car was in fact too difficult to see. My point is simply that minor injuries don't necessarily make a crash less serious. There should still be thorough investigations to make sure nothing important slips through the cracks.
