Two Injured in Truck Accident on I-75 in Bowling Green, OH

Bowling Green, OH -- July 15, 2022, two people were injured due to an accident where multiple semis and a pickup crashed on I-75.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 3:00 a.m. near I-75 and State Route 105.

According to officials, a semi-truck somehow crashed with a pickup before then colliding with another semi-truck.

Due to the crash, both semi drivers were said to have non-life-threatening injuries. Reports were unclear about other possible injuries, saying that three people in the pickup "have not been released from the scene."

At this time, additional details are unavailable.

Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on I-75 in Bowling Green

While it's not clear what happened here, saying that a semi crashed into another vehicle on the interstate is usually a red flag. It's possible there were circumstances that the truck driver couldn't avoid, and it's even possible that the pickup did something unpredictable. But even if the likely explanation here is true, that the semi did something wrong, it's important to know the full story and ensure the right people are held accountable. Things aren't always as simple as just blaming a truck driver and moving on, as many less experienced attorneys tend to do.

I had this crash a while back, for example, in which a truck driver was texting and driving. As open-and-shut as that seems, we made sure to keep digging. What came to light was that the driver was on the phone with his supervisor. But why did this change things?

Essentially, the supervisor at this company would constantly text and call drivers throughout the day, demanding they respond right away. If they failed to, then they risked losing their jobs. Naturally, this led to drivers taking risks on the road rather than risk losing their ability to put food on their family's table. It was only a matter of time before someone got hurt.

Where a less experienced attorney may see a driver to throw the book at, a more careful investigation would find a driver who, while still in the wrong, was merely the symptom of the actual problem. Failing to address such issues allows negligent companies to persist and continue putting the public at risk.

Put simply, when folks come to me for help, they also want one other important thing: accountability. They want to know those responsible for their hardships are being held fully accountable for their actions. So while it isn't clear what exactly happened in this crash, there should be plenty of motivation to ensure the right professionals are looking into the details.
