Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on Country Club Road in Tucson
In some of the photos from the scene, it appears that thre car involved collided with the rear of a tractor-trailer. Details like that can often lead people to jump to all kinds of conclusions. This is due to the all too common misconception that someone is automatically at fault when they rear-end someone. That's simply not how the law works.
Is someone usually at fault for such a crash? Absolutely. That's due to these incidents generally involving things like distracted driving, speeding, or following too closely. But what about an 18-wheeler cutting someone off? What about a mechanical issue? What about road hazards or a medical emergency? What if some other reckless driver caused the crash and left the scene? Jumping to conclusions stands in the way of getting answers while conducting thorough investigations into these possibilities--likely or not--allows the evidence to speak for itself. Are those efforts being made here?
