Multi-Vehicle Accident with Semi-Truck Kills One Person and Injures Another on I-10, Phoenix, Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona-  One person died and another injured in a collision between a flatbed tow truck and two other vehicles. The incident took place on the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in central Phoenix shortly after 8 p.m.

According to reports, the flatbed tow truck sideswiped a second vehicle, causing the latter to spin out of control and for the tow truck to suddenly stop in one of the freeway lanes.

A third vehicle, unable to stop in time, rear-ended the tow truck.

The driver of the third vehicle suffered fatal injuries and died on the scene.

The tow truck driver was transported to the hospital with a head injury. The driver of the second vehicle did not sustain any injuries.

No other details have been provided.

Thoughts on Multi-Vehicle Accidents with Large Trucks

What caused the flatbed tow truck to sideswipe another vehicle, leading to a fatal chain-reaction collision? Was the driver distracted? Fatigued? What about the trucking company? Does the truck employer vet its drivers for repeated traffic violations? Do they provide safety training for their drivers and expect them to follow safety rules?

Accidents like this one don’t just happen. A trail of negligence usually shows these incidents were avoidable and someone lost their life senselessly. The deceased’s family deserves to know the answers and hold all parties at fault accountable.
