A deadly big rig truck accident occurred in the early hours of April 21 on Interstate 5. The crash transpired around 1 a.m. along the northbound side of the freeway near Howard Road. As per the California Highway Patrol, a semi-truck driver noticed a possibly drunk driver operating a big rig truck.
He tried to stop the driver from driving further by positioning his truck to stop the other vehicle from moving head-on Interstate 5. Unfortunately, his actions caused traffic to halt suddenly, leading to a three-vehicle big rig pileup.
The 41-year-old driver of one of the big rigs was thrown out from the truck and killed in the crash. The authorities said that he was a resident of Five Points in Stanislaus County. Daniel Avilan-Tirado who was operating the big rig was later arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Investigations into the crash are in progress.

How Can a Big Rig Truck Accident Lawyer Help?
Big rig trucks are huge in size and are very heavy. Due to their huge size and weight, accidents involving big rigs result in very serious injuries or at times turn fatal.
If you have been involved in a big rig accident and have been hit badly and suffer from broken bones, cuts, and bruises, internal injuries, brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries, you will need the help of a specialized big rig truck accident lawyer who can represent your rights and interests.
Big rig truck accident cases are more complicated as compared to other vehicular accidents, as they involve liability issues. In such cases, not only the driver but the trucking company can also be held liable.
After an accident, the main aim of the trucking company is to avoid any form of liability. All trucking companies and their drivers have ample insurance but they do not want to claim fault or liability for collisions.
These companies try all the legal resources to avoid any liability and save money.
