In yet another bizarre crash involving multiple trucks, three people suffered major personal injuries, including the driver of one of the trucks, a passenger in another truck and someone standing on the shoulder who was hit by flying debris. The truck accident on the San Mateo Bridge happened when one big rig truck rear-ended another truck that was parked on the shoulder. The third big rig then hit more trucks. One of the crashed trucks lost its load of cement which was strewn over the roadway. As truck accident attorneys who are handling a fatality which occurred this Summer on this very same bridge, we are starting to wonder if the State bears a share of responsibility for a dangerous roadway. What do you think? Why do certain roadways have so many injury accidents? Is it always all the drivers’ fault, or might a dangerous roadway be a substantial factor?
