It appears that a dump truck was going along the I-90 ramp when it somehow crossed over the median. As a result, it went into oncoming lanes where a multi-vehicle collision happened.

Due to the crash, at least three people had unspecified injuries. No additional details about the crash are available at this time.

Commentary on Dump Truck Accident on I-90 in Chicopee

It's not entirely clear what happened here, but a truck veering over a median is rarely a good sign, to say the least. As likely as it is that the driver screwed up, it's important investigations are thorough to find out for sure. There could be extenuating circumstances to consider.

For example, I handled a situation not long ago where a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel. As straight-forward as that seemed, it turned out the company he worked for coerced drivers to meet ludicrous deadlines or else they risked getting fired. Naturally, someone was going to make a mistake and get themselves or others hurt, and that's exactly what happened.

There's a big difference between someone being reckless on their own and being reckless because their company is making negligent decisions that put the whole public at risk. Having the experience and tools to anticipate and handle these possible factors is what separates effective truck wreck investigations from shallow investigations that barely scratch the surface. For those in need of help and answers, the preferable option is no doubt obvious.
