Navigating around 18-wheelers and other traffic can sometimes be difficult when traffic is at its finest, but when another vehicle makes a mistake, the results can be tragic. A recent truck accident involving multiple vehicles caused serious injuries and, sadly, one death. With the aid of eyewitness testimony, California police are continuing to investigate the initial cause of the wreck.
The wreck occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on Highway 17. Apparently, an 18-wheeler that may have been transporting gravel jackknifed across the highway, setting off a chaotic chain of accidents. The victim, unable to stop in time, collided with the stopped 18-wheeler and was thrown at least partially from his vehicle.
