Sonoma Big Rig Semi-Truck Crash Lakeville Highway at Sears Point Road, August 1Semi-Truck Carrying Vegetables Rear-Ends Vehicle

SONOMA (August 1, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, an injurious rear-end collision involving a semi-truck was reported just before noon today at Lakeville Highway and Sears Point Road also known as Highway 37.

Authorities were notified of the accident which transpired at 11:53 after a semi-truck carrying vegetables struck the back of an SUV. Another vehicle may have also been involved, however, that detail cannot be confirmed at this time.

Meanwhile, the big rig overturned onto its side causing the load of vegetables it had been hauling to spill across the road.

At Least 1 Person Injured and Hospitalized

The driver of the SUV and possibly another motorist involved sustained injuries which were described as moderate as paramedics were prompted to attend the scene and offer medical aid. At least one of those parties was eventually transported to a hospital.

CHP officials did not indicate whether or not the big rig driver was hurt.

A street sweeper, as well as several tow-trucks, were dispatched to the scene also to assist in clearing debris and removing the vehicles from off the roadway.

No further details have been provided at this time.

Pending the investigation, the company employing the big rig driver will likely be held liable for the collision. Authorities will examine photos that were taken of the scene as well as compiled evidence will help investigators determine the ultimate cause of the collision. Police officials will look into all potential factors including speed, the possible involvement of alcohol or drugs, or whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by all vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those who suffered injuries following a collision may be entitled file a personal injury lawsuit against the company responsible for this collision. Those not found liable may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
