A semi tractor-trailer was involved in an accident in mid-January that killed a man on Interstate 15. According to Nevada Highway Patrol, the man was struck by the truck and pronounced dead at the scene.
Area police later revealed that the man was believed to have stepped into the freeway prior to being hit. One eyewitness, who was traveling back to California from Utah, indicated that he saw the victim pacing near the middle of the freeway, before running into the path of the semi truck.
Police confirmed that the accident remained under investigation, but no wrongdoing on the part of the driver was suspected at the time of the crash.
It is not uncommon for accidents involving large trucks or semi tractor-trailers to occur. However, when these incidents occur, they can cause significant injuries to all involved. When that occurs, it is best for victims to seek the counsel of a qualified attorney.
