Auto accidents don’t just involve two cars, but in Colorado many semi trucks drive through the Rocky Mountains and cause fatal accidents. In Colorado just the other day a semi truck driver who was hauling two trailers ended up losing control and crashing into a Honda CR-V in the mountains in Avon, Colorado. There are many different reasons an auto accident like this could have occurred. However, the police believe that speed and exhaustion could have been the main factors in this car crash. Semi truck drivers are under extremely strict guidelines on how long they can drive before taking mandatory breaks, to prevent exhaustion and unsafe conditions for other drivers.
Unfortunately the driver of the semi truck did not survive this terrible auto accident, but the two occupants of the Honda survived even though their car was completely crushed by the accident.
