The Aftermath of the Horrific Semi-Truck Crash on 5 Freeway

Despite their scrupulous creation and mapping for efficient travel, highways are among the most dangerous places on earth. Consequently, everyone must remain calm to handle the situation effectively after a collision.

In fact, on the AAA Foundation website, Chief Executive Officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”

The following are things we should remember if we are involved in an accident:

  • Before anything else, seek medical attention if you or someone with you has been hurt.
  • Get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
  • Collect as much information as possible, including insurance and contact information for people involved in the accident and pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Also, do not forget to document faults and whatever can be used as evidence.
  • File a police report or incident report by calling 911.
