One Killed in 18-Wheeler Accident on Route 16 in Dover, NH

Dover, NH — December 12, 2022, one person died in a three-vehicle accident involving an 18-wheeler on State Route 16 in Dover.

Authorities say the incident happened Monday afternoon along Route 16. Preliminary investigation suggests a southbound tractor-trailer left its travel lane for unknown reasons. The truck passed through a guardrail and into the northbound lane, where it collided with two cars.

One of the northbound drivers died in the crash. Another reportedly sustained minor injuries.

The investigation continues. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Truck Accident on Rt 16 in Dover

Reports suggest the truck driver ran through the median and caused this tragic wreck. Obviously there's still more investigating to do to find out why the big rig went out of control, but I think after reading the preliminary details most people would say the trucker is at fault. From a legal point of view that would also mean his employer is at fault, which is why the trucking company is likely already gearing up to prove it isn't. Those firms have no shortage of defensive tricks and strategies to help them escape liability, which is why I try to make folks aware of the hurdles they should expect--and ways to overcome them.
