Northern California Truck Overturns, Blocks Highway 17

By Kelly Balamuth on September 20, 2010

The chain reaction that an auto accident is capable of creating can be devastating. If a larger vehicle, such as a big rig, is involved, the results are often catastrophic. Sometimes, the effects of an accident are felt by people who weren’t even involved, as a recent truck accident near the Santa Clara County-Santa Cruz County border illustrated.

According to The Santa Cruz Sentinel, an accident involving an overturned tractor-trailer on Highway 17 resulted in northbound traffic being blocked near Big Moody Curve. California Highway Patrol officers proceeded to advise motorists to take alternate routes, which indirectly may have lead to a second accident on Highway 9, also involving a truck. Because this primary alternate route was also affected, motorists were forced to take other routes during their morning travel, with reported instances of smaller accidents taking place throughout mountain roads.

While details surrounding the cause of the first crash were not yet made available through this report, reckless driving is a common cause of many Northern California auto accidents. In the event that a motorist is involved in an accident that was caused by negligence of some kind, the negligent party or parties may be held liable for their actions in a court of law.
