Two Injured in Truck Accident on Interstate 59 in Moselle, MS

Moselle, MS — October 9, 2022, two people were hospitalized after a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 59 in Moselle.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:00 p.m. along I-59 near mile marker 75. Preliminary investigation suggests a tractor-trailer somehow clipped a pickup truck along the highway, causing the smaller truck to swerve off the interstate and overturn. A third vehicle sustained minor damage during the accident and the big rig lost part of its cargo of wire bales onto the road.

Two people were transported from the scene to an are hospital for injuries ranging from minor to serious. Three other people declined transport.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Moselle Truck Accident on I-59

There's still more investigation needed here to say exactly what happened on the interstate, but if preliminary reports have their facts straight it seems like the commercial truck hit the pickup and triggered the damage to its occupants. Depending on how and why that occurred, some folks may think there's little else needed before the 18-wheeler's driver (and by extension their employer) would have to accept responsibility for the damage done.

That may seem reasonable on paper, but crashes involving commercial vehicles are rarely so simple to resolve. It's always important to investigate them carefully and round up all the clear facts--not only to ensure everyone knows the whole story, but also because those facts and the evidence supporting them are usually needed to get injured crash victims the help they deserve. Experience has shown me that without that proof most trucking companies will fight tooth and nail against accepting liability.

Here's the hitch, though: Police investigations rarely dig deep enough to find all those needed details. That's why after crashes with serious injuries like this one--particularly ones involving commercial trucks--I suggest enlisting the help of independent experts who have the time, tools, and training to find answers. Will appropriate steps be taken in Moselle to get those injured folks the help they need?
