Trucker Pleads Guilty in Fatal Crash – Pueblo Personal Injury Attorney

Friday, September 24th, 2010

A trucker from Texas has pleaded guilty in causing the deaths of two women during a 2009 snow storm. According to 7News, Richard Widmier pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide on Wednesday in state court. Widmier was driving his tractor trailer eastbound on I-70 when it slammed into the back of a Jeep Liberty killing both women inside almost instantly. Investigators said that the Jeep was traveling in the far right lane at about 15 miles an hour due to white out conditions. Witness statements and accident reconstruction indicated that the tractor trailer was traveling between 56 and 63 miles an hour at the time of the collision.

When a large truck and a passenger vehicle collide, the results can be devastating. According to the “Large Truck Crash Causation” study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, when a passenger vehicle is in an accident with a tractor trailer, semi truck or an 18 wheel truck, the smaller vehicle’s passengers are more likely to be seriously injured or killed than those in the truck. The study reviewed 120,000 large truck accidents that occurred from April 2001 to December 2003. The study involved 241,000 total vehicles where injuries directly resulted from the accident finding that 44,097 crashes resulted in incapacitating injuries.
