Multiple Truck Collision
Wrongful Death of Child
One night in southern Douglas County, Oregon, thick smoke filled a long valley through which the Interstate 5 freeway travels. A nine year-old girl was in the back seat of her mother’s car, stopped behind a flatbed truck that had also stopped because of the smoke. Two big trucking rigs, one a gasoline tanker, barreled down the freeway through what both truck drivers estimated to be about a mile of smoke. The gasoline tanker smashed into the back of the family car, sending it into the fast lane and the guardrail. The second tractor-trailer then ran over the family car. The little girl died in the collisions. The case settled after extensive litigation for $475,000.
