Multi-vehicle crash caused by cattle hauler

Whether it is in morning rush hour traffic, a busy evening commute or during heavy weekend traffic, motorists in Arizona are well aware of the frustration involved with sharing the roadways with other vehicles. Moreover, these motorists are also used to traveling with vehicles of all different makes, shapes and sizes, which often means traveling next to or behind large commercial trucks. Although this might be routine for some drivers, such a task might be concerning for other drivers. Tractor-trailer trucks are massive and have the capability of causing a serious and large accident, involving multiple vehicles.

This kind of truck accident recently occurred in Black Canyon City when nearly two dozen vehicles collided on Interstate 17. According to reports, this multi-vehicle accident occurred after a cattle hauler, unable to stop, plowed directly into these vehicles.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reported that over 20 vehicles were involved, resulting in four injured victims. Those injured in the wreck were transported to the hospital with moderate to serious injuries.

The cars involved in the collision suffered rear or front-end damage as they were pushed off the highway by the cattle hauler. The accident report also noted that the cattle transported in the trailer were not injured as a result of this massive truck accident.

Investigation is still ongoing and no charges have been filed at this time. Those injured in the wreck might have legal recourse available. If the investigation reveals that the truck driver's negligence caused the accident, accident victims can hold that driver accountable for any damages suffered.
