The Nevada Highway Patrol has finally been able to make identification on a semi-truck driver who died in an accident this past Monday afternoon. The accident happened around 3pm on a state highway and the driver of the semi-truck was a 31-year-old man. The accident is still pending investigation, but for some unknown reason, the driver lost control of the truck and then proceeded to drive onto a runaway truck ramp. The truck he was driving was loaded with composite decking material, which shifted when he slammed on the brakes. The shifting of the cargo load is what fatally crushed him.
Since little is known about the circumstances surrounding the accident, the highway patrol is looking for possible witnesses. A truck accident investigation may prove that the driver was the victim of
defective truck equipment. His surviving family members may be able to file a
wrongful death claim against the trucking company if this was the case. Arnold & Itkin is a firm who has a
