The victim of a rear-end accident involving a pickup truck pulling a livestock-trailer has retained Davis Law Group to represent her in possible legal action.
In early April 2019, a woman driving a BMW 328i was traveling westbound on Interstate 182 near milepost 2. She noticed a coyote in the mediate to the left which appeared to be preparing to cross the road. The driver decided to slow down to avoid hitting the coyote. As she slowed the distracted driver of a 2015 Ram pulling a fully-loaded cow-trailer rear-ended her.
The driver of the BMW suffered injuries to her back, neck, tailbone, hip and right leg.
The pickup was owned by Rocking Mt. Farms, Inc. of Mesa, WA.
Truck Pulling Livestock-Trailer Rear-Ends BMW
Towing a livestock trailer is a common practice in rural Washington State. Livestock trailers, also referred to as stock trailers, are used to move livestock between locations, haul show animals to county fairs, and transport animals to processing plants.
When driving on any roadway, those pulling livestock trailers should always maintain a safe speed and stay alert. Braking time increases when you are towing a full trailer. Drivers must maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you and leave adequate room to stop.
