Semi-truck loses control on Vallejo highway, Injuring One Person in Vallejo, California

Vallejo, California – A collision involving a big rig and an SUV unfolded on Sunday night in the vicinity of I-80 eastbound and I-780 westbound highways. The incident occurred when the big rig lost control and jackknifed on the transition ramp, leading to a  collision with an Audi.

The driver of the Audi sustained injuries, although the extent of these injuries remains unknown at this time.

California Highway Patrol has indicated that the weather played a significant role in the accident, with rain pouring across the Bay Area on Sunday.

Thoughts on Semi-trucks on our roadways in inclement weather

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck drivers should reduce their speed by a third in bad weather. Did the truck driver in this incident follow these safety protocols?

A thorough investigation will determine whether this accident could have been prevented. If any wrongdoing is discovered, the truck driver and the trucking company will have to give account.

May all the facts come to light.
