A recent semi truck accident has left an impact on numerous families as it has caused multiple deaths and serious injuries. The truck accident happened on Interstate 40 near Santa Rosa and US 84.
According to reports, a semi truck driver struck a passenger car causing the death of of the driver and then crossed a median into oncoming Interstate 40 traffic which resulted in another fiery crash with a different semi truck.
Had this New Mexico semi truck accident occurred during the winter months one would suspect poor weather was the cause, however, for the accident to occur in August, it is difficult to imagine what exactly the driver was doing that caused the accident.
Ofter times a semi truck driver’s conduct is managed by various trucking regulations and it seems very likely that some of these truck regulations were violated immediately prior to the accident, as well as some of New Mexico’s traffic regulations.
