Big Rig Crashes Near Sierra College

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville Truck Accident Lawyer. A big rig crashed into the center divide in Rocklin near Sierra College. The crash happened during the morning commute on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. No information has been released as to the truck driver’s condition or whether any other vehicles were involved.

What Caused the Big Crash?

It is too soon to know the cause of the big crash. Investigators typically take one to two weeks to prepare a traffic collision report.

It is crucial to have an experienced truck accident lawyer performing an independent investigation to help determine causation in accidents involving large commercial trucks.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

  • Prescription drug and Illicit drug use.
  • Speeding is also a common cause of truck crashes. The force of impact from an 80,000-pound truck becomes more fatal with each mile of increased rate of speed.
  • Unfamiliar with area being travelled.
  • Over-the-counter medications has been shown to be a factor in trucking accidents.
  • Lack of proper truck driver training.
  • Driver fatigue – driving while tired.
  • Driver error – driver engaging in some illegal maneuver, such as failing to use turn signal.
  • Distracted driving – driver takes eyes off road.
  • Improper loads. Driver fails to properly secure his or her load.
  • Maintenance issues. Truck has not been properly maintained.
