Pensacola Man in Serious Condition After Accident Involving 2 Trucks

A man from Pensacola was listed in serious condition after an accident involving two semi-trucks on the evening of Sunday, September 3.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol press release, a 57-year-old man from Winter Garden was heading east on Interstate 10 at the 91 mile marker, traveling in the outside lane at about 7:36 p.m. He was driving a 1983 tanker truck. Meanwhile, a 52-year-old man from Pensacola was traveling behind him in a 2015 semi-truck. He collided with the rear of the tanker, with the force of the collision causing his truck to overturn. It came to rest on the south shoulder of the highway.

The eastbound lanes had to be blocked off for approximately four hours so investigators could analyze the crash and get the area cleaned up. The driver of the semi-truck had to be taken to Bay Medical Sacred Heart for treatment.

The man in the tanker and his passenger were uninjured, although he was cited for having faulty equipment. FHP officials believe the bad equipment was a primary factor in the crash.

Defective equipment can be the fault of several parties

When faulty equipment is to blame for a crash, there could be several different parties at fault. For instance, the manufacturer of the equipment could be liable if the equipment was designed in an inherently faulty way or if there was a flaw in the manufacturing process. In addition, the owner of the vehicle or the trucking company could be liable if they failed to properly maintain the vehicle.
