The accident happened on Interstate 10 on Sunday between a car and two semi-trucks. A Honda CR-V lost control due to the rain and spun out of control while coming to a stop in the traffic lanes. As a result of the crash, the two trailer-tractors were fully engulfed in flames.

A passenger in the Honda, 33-year-old Viviana Carrillo, and truck driver Bradly Dean Johnson, 53, was killed at the scene.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led to the accident, and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Truck Accident Lawyers, Sutliff & Stout

Car accidents happen on highways, freeways, and county roads every day, whether it be due to road conditions, traffic, construction, weather conditions, or even debris. In the case above, wet roads caused a vehicle to hydroplane and crash into two other vehicles. Hydroplaning occurs when the combination of a slippery road, speeding, and tire pressure causes a driver to lose control. 

Accidents caused by hydroplaning are the reason many people suffer injuries, even accidents that cause people to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the hospital, or killed.
