Without warning, five smaller vehicles including a white Kia Optima and pickup truck crashed into the semi-truck, resulting in the multi-vehicle crash. Afterward, police issued a SigAlert and dispatched a group of five tow trucks to extract the vehicles from the freeway. The extent of injuries sustained by the drivers has not been revealed.

Traffic Accident Investigation
At present, officials are determining what specific factors caused the truck driver to veer into oncoming traffic and collide with the approaching group of five vehicles. Further investigations will consider distracted/negligent driving and inability to comply with traffic laws as catalysts for the accident. Regardless, the employers of the trucker and the individual driver could potentially face charges.
By law, the victims of the multi-car collision have the right to issue a personal injury lawsuit against the company and the truck driver, should they be convicted.
