In Avondale, West Phoenix, four people were injured after a serious rollover
accident occurred on 1-10. The accident was so serious that the freeway
had to be closed going both directions. It occurred last Sunday morning
at 1 a.m. and the exact location of the accident was going east near the
Sarival Avenue exit. According to the Highway Patrol officers who were
investigating, one 18-wheeler truck driver lost control of the vehicle.
As a result, the truck collided with two other trucks.
One of the trucks involved in the collision rolled over the middle freeway
divider and was left lying on its side in oncoming traffic. So far, four
people were seriously injured and two had to be extracted from their vehicles.
It remains to be seen what the exact cause of the accident was and an
investigation is underway. If some type of impairment was part of the
reason the accident occurred, then the driver may be held liable for their
part in the accident.
When there is a collision involving large vehicles likes 18-wheelers, the
results of the accident could be much more serious. Not only is there
size and sheer weight involved, but the drivers themselves can pose a
certain risk. Truck drivers are required to spend long hours on the road
every day and, in some cases, federal regulations are not upheld or enforced.

truck accident, and you believe that negligence was a factor in the case, you could be
