Bakersfield, CA – According to KBAK, in the early hours of Tuesday, April 30, 2024, an accident involving a big rig overturning resulted in the hospitalization of its driver and disrupted morning traffic.

The solo-vehicle crash, which was reported just before 3 AM, closed northbound I-5 just north of Grapevine Road in the number 3 and 4 lanes. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) Incident Page also notes significant damage to a barbed wire fence in the vicinity as a result of the crash.

No further details have been provided as to the severity of the driver’s injuries or what factors may have led to the big rig overturning.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
