It appears based on news reports and the CHP dispatch, that the truck driver may have set off the collision.
It’s unknown at this time whether negligence on the part of the truck driver contributed to this collision. If this is confirmed by authorities it is possible the driver will face both criminal charges and a civil lawsuit.
