Plymouth, MN (July 31, 2023) – On Sunday evening, emergency crews responded to the scene of an automobile accident in the Plymouth area that claimed one person’s life.
The accident occurred at around 5:10 p.m. on July 30.
According to reports from the Minnesota State Patrol, a box truck crashed into multiple vehicles on the southbound side of Highway 169 in Plymouth. Authorities arrived at the scene and located several damaged vehicles on the road just north of Highway 55.
Crash investigations show that the box truck was traveling at a high rate of speed on the highway when it crashed into a Nissan Altima, which was nearly stopped at an incident on the road. The impact forced the Altima to collide with a Chevrolet Tahoe.
At least one person involved in the crash suffered fatal injuries. The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
At this time, the Minnesota State Patrol is investigating.
We offer our condolences to the family of the victim who died in this accident.
Truck collisions result in tens of thousands of injuries each year in the United States, often leaving victims hospitalized with severe trauma, including head and spinal cord injuries. In the event of a truck accident, those affected have the right to pursue legal action against the liable party. However, to obtain justice, it is crucial to establish liability.
To prove liability after a truck accident, you will need to show that the commercial truck driver or truck company failed to exercise the required standard of care given the circumstances. Additionally, it is essential to establish that their negligence directly caused the injuries sustained.
Countless factors can contribute to truck accidents, including driver fatigue, speeding, inadequate truck maintenance, inexperienced drivers, and aggressive driving. Once the active negligence leading to harm has been proven, you must then provide evidence of the damages that you suffered. These damages may include lost wages, vehicle repair expenses, medical costs, and even non-economic losses such as pain and suffering.
If you have been injured in a truck accident due to the negligence of another driver, you may have grounds to file a legal claim against responsible parties. Given how difficult it can be to handle truck accident cases, it is critically important that you seek the services of a skilled and experienced truck accident lawyer to navigate your case and ensure your best interests are represented.
