Soda Springs, CA – According to ABC10, On Monday, April 1, 2024, a big rig collided with the back of a Caltrans sander near Soda Springs, injuring both drivers.

The California Highway Patrol first received word of the collision around 5:52 AM and arrived at the crash site at the Soda Springs exit of Interstate 80 to find that the vehicles crashed into each other with so much force that the cab of the big rig detached from its trailer.

The drivers of both vehicles have minor injuries, according to CHP. Traffic along westbound I-80 was temporarily being turned at the California-Nevada state line and at the Donner Gate in Truckee. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Personal Injury Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on various factors, and the state of California allows for partial liability to be allocated to multiple parties. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help victims as they are recovering from a traffic accident.

Suppose it is determined that another party holds responsibility for their injuries. In that case, victims may be eligible to file a personal injury claim with the insurance provider of those at fault. A personal injury claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of income due to time taken off work for recovery.
