SUV and Semi-Truck Accident Results in Serious Injury on Dysart Road in Surprise, Arizona

Surprise, Arizona –  One person suffered serious injuries after their SUV and a semi-truck collided. The accident took place around 5 a.m. on Tuesday near the Dysart Road intersection on Grand Avenue.

On-site footage showed the SUV pinned beneath a semi-truck.

As details emerge, further updates will be provided to the public.

Thoughts on Underride Accidents

Accidents like these are terrible, and the images are disturbing. While we do not have details on what happened, it is concerning that this SUV was pinned under the trailer. Whether the cause of the crash rests with the trucker or the SUV driver, an innocent person has died, and the photos suggest it was likely due to the vehicle going under the trailer. This is known as an underride accident.

Underride accidents happen when a truck does not have safety bars in place, allowing a car to slide underneath the trailer’s body easily. They are very dangerous and may result when a trailer is not designed with safety in mind. The truck manufacturer may be held accountable when the lack of these safety features contributes to serious injury or death. The type of accident (underride), along with the actions of the trucker and employer, needs to be considered to ensure the surviving family receives the answers they deserve.
