Three People Were Injured After a Semi-Truck And A Passenger Vehicle Crashed On State Route 85 in Buckeye

Buckeye, Arizona – Three people were injured after a serious semi-truck accident Tuesday night. The accident happened on State Route 85 and involved a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle.

According to reports, the force of the collision pushed the passenger vehicle off the roadway.

The emergency crew closed the area where the collision happened for a short time while the area was cleaned.

Authorities have not released the names of the injured people nor specified what vehicle they traveled. However, three people were transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No further information was immediately available.

Legal rights are available to those injured in a truck accident

If you are injured in a truck accident you have a right to recover financial compensation for the harm you have suffered if the accident was caused by another party’s negligence. There hasn’t been enough information provided to determine who caused this accident. However, considering the fact three people were injured and the passenger vehicle was pushed off the roadway, it is likely that this accident was caused by driver error.

According to a study conducted by the FMCSA, roughly 45% of accidents involving a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle are caused by the truck. Of those accidents, nearly 80% are caused by driver error of some sort. These errors cannot go unaccounted for, and negligent drivers must be held accountable. Holding drivers and their employers responsible for injuries caused by their actions Is the best way to prevent other accidents from occurring. A company that must financially compensate an injured victim for their driver’s actions has a strong incentive to prevent such actions from occurring in the future.
