Redding Big Rig Collision
I’m Ed Smith, a Redding car accident lawyer. At approximately 2:45 p.m. on Sunday, January 22, 2017, a two-vehicle accident occurred in Redding on Interstate 5 northbound near the Delta Road off-ramp.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) received a call on Sunday afternoon of a big rig and a white sedan being involved in a traffic collision. When first responders arrived on scene they discovered that the force of the initial impact sent a white sedan into the center divide and the big-rig was located on the right-hand side of the highway. At this time it is unknown how this automobile and the big-rig accident occurred. The CHP is conducting an investigation to see if distracted driving or driving under the influence to be a factor in the collision.
Were There Injuries?
CHP reports indicated that an involved party at the scene requested medical assistance, Shascom arrived on scene and transported an injured party to a local hospital. It is unknown at this time the extent of the injuries the involved party sustained in this big-rig collision.
Because large commercial trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds or more, accidents involving big rigs can have fatal consequences. There are regulations and laws in place to protect motorists from the negligent actions of truck drivers and the companies that hire them. If you have been involved in an accident with a large commercial truck and you think the trucker was at fault, contact an experienced accident lawyer.
