Dual Semi-Truck Accident I-5 Canyonville, OR

With a situation like this, folks may think this was all just some unavoidable collision. That could be true. One can't exactly predict when an animal is going to run in the roadway. But there could be extenuating circumstances to consider. Did the first truck have working brake lights? Was the second truck following too closely? Did anything like fatigue or cell phone usage contribute? Did safety features on the trucks function properly? Were the drivers working for companies that force them to work long hours or operate poorly maintained trucks? These can all have a serious impact on a crash and make an otherwise mild collision far more serious. If nothing else, taking steps to get clear answers is crucial for people in need of help. Are those steps being taken?
