Joseph Gassen Injured in an Accident with a Semi-Truck on State Road 35 in Buffalo County, Wisconsin

Buffalo County, Wisconsin — One person was hurt when his truck was struck from behind by a semi-tractor-trailer. The collision took place on State Road 35 near the 5A Dam.

According to reports, Joseph Gassen was traveling northbound on State Road 35, and as he slowed or stopped in the northbound lane to make a left turn, his vehicle was struck from behind by a semi-tractor-trailer.

Gassen suffered injuries, and an ambulance transported him to the hospital.

Further details will be provided as they become available.

Thoughts on Rear-end Collisions with Semi-Trucks

Most rear-end collisions happen because of driver error. In fact, 87 percent of rear-end crashes happen because of a distracted driver (National Transportation Safety Board). It appears that something like this happened here. The injured was in his truck following the rules when another driver crashed into him. This accident will likely change the rest of his life, and the wrongdoer should be held accountable.
