Semi Pulling Two Trailers Crashes along Icy I-84

UPS-Truck-crash

A truck driver was injured on Thursday morning after his UPS semi truck pulling two trailers crashed and rolled over along Interstate 84.

Odell Thomas, 55, of Vancouver, was driving the truck too fast on the icy freeway as he approached slowing eastbound traffic.

Thomas lost control of his truck when it rolled over on the opposite side of the highway about 10 miles east of Arlington.

Thomas was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

We wish Odell Thomas a full and speedy recovery.

Accidents like this are commonly caused by wet roads and ice. When these conditions occur, you need to be especially careful. Unfortunately, in most cases these accidents are considered the fault of the driver. But, in some cases, the accident may have been caused by poor road conditions, other drivers’ bad judgment, or another reason not readily apparent. Personal injury lawyers have experience with these types of investigations, or you can hire a personal investigator with experience in auto crashes.

Even if the insurance company finds you at fault, you can still pursue getting your bills paid through your PIP policy coverage. If you need help dealing with the insurance company, or just want to discuss your legal options for ensuring that your damages are paid, our Portland personal injury lawyers can help.
