Multi-Vehicle Accident on Highway 880

By Kelly Balamuth on November 7, 2014

On September 15, 2014, nine people were injured when an SUV lost control and hit the center divider on Highway 880 near San Leandro, according to local NBC news.  A big rig loaded with concrete that was driving nearby could not stop in time when the accident occurred and hit the center divider as well, sending the concrete flying.

Over ten cars were involved in the domino effect that followed.  Many of the cars were badly crumpled and some caught on fire.  Three people were critically injured and one had to be air-lifted from the scene.

When driving on the freeway, motorists must rely on each other to keep control of their own vehicles.  With multiple cars traveling in excess of 60 miles per hour, if one vehicle loses control, the outcome can be devastating.

It can be challenging to determine who is at fault and who has insurance when multiple vehicles are involved in a collision. If you are injured in a multiple party collision, it is important to hire experienced counsel to maximize your recovery.  This is especially true when big rigs are involved because the laws that apply to truck drivers are more complex and nuanced than those that apply to regular C licenses.

If you or a family member has been injured in a freeway collision involving multiple vehicles, contact an experienced lawyer to learn about your options. You may be entitled to significant compensation from the at-fault party.
