Even though most drivers are well aware of the risks they face every time they get in their vehicle, accidents continue to claim lives. Furthermore, even if someone drives responsibly, they could be struck by a negligent driver. When semi trucks are involved in a crash, there is a greater likelihood of victims suffering from serious injuries and death. Whether a big rig has bad tires or a drunk truck driver is behind the wheel, too many of these incidents continue to take place in San Francisco, CA, and across the country.
A multi-vehicle accident recently occurred in Orland, California, on Interstate 5. The wreck involved a semi that was pulling a double trailer, a tour bus full of students and other vehicles. A total of 48 people were inside the vehicles that were struck, 40 of whom were students on a tour bus that was headed to Humboldt State University.
