SAN DIEGO (September 18, 2018) – Two women were seriously injured after a traffic collision along Highway 163 in the Miramar neighborhood Tuesday morning, according to San Diego Union-Tribune and CBS 8.

The accident took place at about 8:05 a.m. near the Highway 52 interchange.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a big rig was allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed down southbound Highway 163 when it hit the back of a 2006 Toyota Highlander SUV.

The Highlander, which was slowing for traffic at the time, was forced into a 2017 Hyundai Sonata and two other vehicles on the highway. The SUV went off the roadway and caught fire upon impact.

Based on the news reports, the operator of the truck is accused of speeding at the time of the incident. Authorities will continue to investigate the collision, and will determine whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was a mechanical issue with the tractor-trailer and whether or not the driver was distracted prior to impact. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles, such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.

Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this incident, the injured and not held responsible for causing the crash will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
