Woman Hurt in Semi-Truck Accident on Highway 60 Near Eagle Lake, Minnesota

Eagle Lake, Minnesota –  A 2020 Dodge Durango and a 2019 Kenworth trailer collided at an intersection east of Eagle Lake. The crash transpired at 4:13 p.m.

The SUV driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on Semi-Truck Collisions

We do not have enough details on this incident to conclude what transpired.

An investigation conducted by trained professionals should answer essential questions. Who caused the collision? Was the driver distracted? Fatigued? Impaired? Speeding?

If any of these answers are yes or if they were driving negligently, they can be held accountable for the suffering and injuries their actions caused.

Additionally, the trucking company the driver works for may share the blame. What safety protocols do they have in place? Do they provide their drivers with safety training procedures? Do they vet their drivers for red flags and repeated traffic violations? Do they pressure their drivers to meet deadlines to the point of fatigue? If they do not have a culture of promoting safe driving, they should also be held accountable for causing harm.

May the answers to these questions be provided so justice can be served.
