SUV and U-Haul Accident Leaves a Woman Seriously Injured on Highway 142 in Brighton, Kenosha County, Wisconsin

Brighton, Kenosha County –  Around 7:30 a.m., a U-Haul truck rear-ended an SUV on Highway 142 on what is known as Burlington Road.

As a result of the collision, the SUV driver was life-flighted to the hospital with serious injuries.

The U-Haul truck driver fled the scene and is at large.

No other details have been provided.

Thoughts on U-Haul Accidents

U-Haul trucks are everywhere. They are a popular choice for people to transport their belongings from one place to another because of their convenience and ease of renting. But their accessibility comes at a price: most motorists have little to no experience driving a bigger-sized truck, which places other motorists at risk. When these inexperienced drivers cause another person serious injury or death, the driver and U-Haul company may share fault for the preventable accident. It is not fair for corporate companies to rent large dangerous vehicles to unqualified drivers and then escape liability when preventable accidents happen.

We do not have all the details about this accident, but we know a U-Haul driver rear-ended another vehicle, fled the scene, and someone was seriously injured. Trained professionals must conduct an independent investigation to ensure all wrongdoing is determined and the at-fault parties identified.
