Three Killed in Accident near 325 Espinosa Road in Salinas, CA

Salinas, CA -- A collision between a passenger car and a semi-truck claimed the lives of a 33-year-old man, a 33-year-old woman and a 61-year-old woman in Salinas, CA.

The incident took place on Espinosa Road around 1 p.m.

According to the report, the vehicle occupied by the victims crashed into the semi-truck, killing all three occupants. It appears the semi-truck was attempting a left turn into a private driveway when the BMW struck the back of the truck.

The report makes no mention of other injuries in the incident.

Police officials have yet to determine who was at fault in the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.

Without a more thorough investigation, it's impossible to say who was at fault in this accident. However, after litigating hundreds of truck accidents, the details provided by the report leave me wondering. Did the truck have the appropriate lights and reflectors to notify the driver of the passenger car it was turning into the private drive? Was the driver of the BMW speeding? Should the truck have been pulling into the private drive? In order for all involved to find closure, a more thorough, scientific investigation should take place, and all the right questions need answered.
