A recent Carlsbad semi truck accident seems to belong in Hollywood rather than the streets of New Mexico. The tanker truck accident occurred on State Road 128 (Jal Highway) when two semi trucks collided head on. Both trucks were tanker trucks and believed to be carrying full loads. The head-on accident has claimed the life of one Carlsbad resident, and resulted in critical injuries to an El Paso man.
As is true with all New Mexico semi truck accidents, one of the most common problems that arrise is the need to preserve crucial evidence such as black boxes and data records before they are wiped clean. Sadly, many accident victims and their mourning families overlook these pressing needs and occasionally experience a weaker case as a result.
