Chain Accident Temporarily Closed Freeway

A four-vehicle chain accident caused injuries to several people and resulted in the traffic closure of the west lane of Interstate Highway 580 up to the Bay Bridge.

Authorities are yet to release a statement about the real cause of the accident but major crashes as the recent one in Oakland is sure to result to property damages and, of course, injuries.

In chain accidents, the liability will depend on the comparative negligence of each party involved which further complicates these accidents.

To avoid being involved in such accidents, speeding and tailgating should be avoided as well as DUI.
