According to law enforcement officers in Albuquerque, on June 28th, a tractor-trailer was involved in a multi-vehicle accident resulting in multiple injuries. The crash occurred at 12:52 a.m. on Interstate 40.
State troopers stated that the semi rolled over after the accident, colliding with multiple vehicles. The crash happened in the eastbound lanes of the freeway near Eubank Boulevard. Debris was scattered across all lanes, which caused them to be shut down while crews worked to clear the rubble.
Ambulances responded immediately, and several injuries were reported. The conditions of the victims have yet to be reported at this time.
No reports have been made as to the cause of the crash, which remains under investigation.
Semi-Truck Accidents in New Mexico
In 2019, the recorded rate at which people were killed in crashes in New Mexico rose to its highest level, with an average of 20 people per 100,000. Any type of accident has the potential to be devastating; however, accidents in New Mexico involving semi-trucks, like anywhere else in the U.S., are often fatal, and when they’re not, cause catastrophic injuries. It is essential to understand your fundamental rights, whether you were involved in a crash or lost a loved one in a tragic accident.
Whatever your circumstances might be, having the help of a skilled and competent lawyer will ensure your rights are protected. They will help keep your insurance company from backing out on the promises they made to you and, if another party’s negligence was the cause of your injuries, will fight to hold them accountable for your damages.
