Fiery Crash Caused by Big Rig; Blocked Traffic

A crash on I-5 blocked the traffic for several hours as authorities extinguish the big rig that had caught fire after it collided on a center divider in Burbank.

According to reports, the incident involved at least five other vehicles and one motorist was trapped for a short period of time as another sustained minor injuries.

If the big rig driver is found guilty of negligence, he is likely to be held accountable for the compensatory damages that victims of the accident must receive.

In case the fire accident could have been partly caused by the rig’s defects, victims can sue the product manufacturer as well so as to claim compensation for their damages.
