"Didn't See You": Why Blind Spots are Not Excuses to New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Large commercial vehicles like semi tractor trailers, tankers, double tandem trailers, big rigs, and other box trucks all have one thing in common: Massive blind spots.  Yes, they have additional mirrors and some newer trucks have blind spot warning and support systems.  However, no matter the protections, blind spots on a large truck are dangerous and can result in serious personal injuries.  One of the common excuses for a blind spot trucking accident is that "I didn't see you," with "I" being the truck driver and "you" being the smaller, passenger vehicle.  Learn why this is not a defense from our New Mexico trucking accident lawyers here.

Fatal Melrose NM Trucking Accident Involving Three Tractor Trailers

News sources are reporting a fatal tractor trailer crash in Melrose, NM which occurred on June 9, 2019. Richard Joseph, a 45 year old man from Tijeras, was killed in a three-tractor trailer crash just west of Melrose, New Mexico. The trucking crash occurred just before 5:30 AM. New Mexico state police indicated that the Mr. Joseph's 2000 Kenworth tractor trailer was traveling east on US 60. This tractor trailer crossed the centerline into the westbound lane and struck a 2017 Kenworth and a 1987 Peterbilt tractor trailer. Richard Jospeh was declared deceased at the scene of the tractor trailer crash. There is limited information regarding this trucking crash at this time. The only other information is that the other truck drivers did not initially report injuries.
