Santa Clarita Bad Weather Truck Accident
Rain in Southern California is known for reeking havic on the roadways. It is common to hear people talking about the driving skills, or lack thereof, of local drivers dealing with wet roadways during bad weather. The freeways are no exception as demonstrated by the big-rig truck accident that occurred on the 5 Freeway in Santa Clarita on Monday. The Signal newspaper reported that a sudden, gusty rainstorm over the Santa Clarita Valley was part of the reason the big-rig flipped on the freeway near the Newhall Pass and contributed to more than a dozen auto accidents Sunday night.
Wet roads, rainy weather and speed were identified as factors in the accident. You don't need me to tell you that trucks flipping on the freeway is an extremely dangerous occurrence. As shown in the news, such accidents are all too common. Although the bad weather was identified in as factor in the accident, driver error is the most common reason for auto accidents.
