This case involves a commercial truck that caused a multi-car crash on a highway. The commercial truck driver had parked the vehicle on the side of the highway within less than 100 feet of an intersection. Upon parking, the truck driver did not put the truck’s hazard lights on. Because of the size of the commercial truck, the visibility in the intersection was severely obstructed. As a compact car attempted to make a left turn at the intersection, it was immediately t-boned by another vehicle driving at approximately 65 mph. The impact of the crash killed the driver of the compact car and caused several other vehicles to rear-end the crashed cars and others to veer off the road. The passengers of the cars involved in the crash suffered a variety of injuries, including whiplash and head trauma. It was alleged that the driver of the commercial truck violated the regulations designating where such vehicles are permitted to park.
