These reports paint a rather complex picture, as things aren't likely to be at all straight-forward. While reports say a truck was making a dangerous maneuver and blocking the roadway while reversing, they also say someone didn't avoid a truck ahead of them despite daylight hours. Now, I can't say what did or didn't contribute to this crash, but let's say, for example, both drivers made a mistake. Who would be at fault? Well, there's no magic equation for that sort of thing. It's simply about whose evidence supports their side more.

Generally speaking, someone is at fault for an accident if their actions are found to be more likely than not the cause of the crash. It could be that a jury, for example, would see a commercial truck suddenly stopping and backing off the roadway, blocking lanes as it did so, to be the more dangerous behavior. On the other hand, they could say that as dangerous as that was, a reasonably prudent driver should have been able to avoid the truck.

There could certainly be extenuating circumstances the reports didn't mention. Perhaps there was actually a co-worker flagging down traffic. Perhaps visibility was an issue due to fog or rain. Perhaps there were other issues, such as mechanical issues or faulty safety devices. It's not for me to say what happened here. My goal is simply to illustrate to people that there is no black-and-white legal rule to say what comes next in a situation like this. All that matters is getting as much evidence as possible and ensuring every possible step is taken to get folks the help they deserve.
