Rooker S. Childers Injured in Crash on I-22

MARSHALL COUNTY, Miss. — Rooker S. Childers, a 20-year-old Holly Springs resident, was injured Jan. 7 in a crash with a semi-trailer east of Olive Branch.

Childers was eastbound on Interstate 22 Red Banks when the car he was operating collided with an eastbound Peterbilt truck driven by 25-year-old Jonathan Bell, of Calhoun Falls, S.C., according to the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

An ambulance transported Childers to a hospital for treatment. EMS treated Bell at the scene of the accident.

The crash happened after 11:30 p.m. Authorities have not released any information about factors that may have contributed to the collision.

Commentary on the Head-on Accident that Injured Rooker Childers

Head-on Accident AttorneysI am relieved to learn Mr. Childers’ life was spared in this accident. Head-on collisions are often deadly, especially between a standard-sized car and a semi-truck. I hope Mr. Childers can make a full and speedy recovery.

Authorities have not yet released pertinent facts surrounding this crash. For one, I would like to know which party impeded the other’s lane of travel. However, regardless of the answer, it is essential to consider why the driver failed to maintain their designated lane.

My firm specializes in product defect law, which takes me across the nation investigating accidents like this one. More often than most folks realize, vehicles fail to perform as intended or are subject to inherently dangerous designs. In such cases, my clients’ injuries are exasperated beyond what they should have been had the vehicle been properly manufactured. I have found failure in tires, steering columns, accelerators, and braking systems leading to drivers’ loss of control and causing catastrophic accidents.

It is too premature to determine if product defect played any role in this accident; a detailed investigation will need to be conducted to determine that. However, it is wise to hold judgment until all information has been determined.
