Mark Thompson, Sean Thompson Injured by Semi-Truck Accident on U.S. 60 in Three Rivers, MI


Three Rivers, MI — There was a fatal accident at the U.S. 60 and U.S. 131 exchange in Three Rivers last week that left two people injured, Mark Thompson and his son, Sean Thompson.

The accident happened at about 11:00 p.m. last Friday night, December 5, 2014. Mark Thompson, 57, was driving his minivan east along U.S. 60 that night with Sean as his passenger when they were in a wreck at the aforementioned intersection with a semi-truck that was headed south on U.S. 131.

The impact left both Mark and Sean in serious condition, news reports said, but the semi-truck driver wasn’t injured at all. His name was later released as Sefjudin Pargan, 38 years old.

The news reports didn’t really go into detail to explain who was at fault or if any charges would be filed, but the accident tis still going to be investigated.

Scene of the Accident

Commentary:

The traffic going east-west appears to have had a flashing red light, which might mean that the victim driver is at fault here. However, I don’t ever make assumptions without getting all the information because even the police reports and the news outlets get details wrong sometimes.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
