UPDATE: Danielle Roberts Killed in Log Truck Accident in Junction City, Oregon

JUNCTION CITY, OR — Danielle Robert was identified as the woman that was killed in an accident with a log truck in Junction City, Oregon on Thursday, January 29th, 2015. Several news reports said that the accident happened at about 7:00 Thursday morning.

25-year-old Danielle Roberts was killed when the Honda CRV she was driving was hit by a log truck in a chain-reaction accident on Highway 99. Officials said that a pickup truck crossed the center line of traffic where it struck the CRV, which was then in-turn struck by a log truck.

Roberts was killed in the crash. Also Killed was 25-year-old Brandon Foster.

The investigation is currently ongoing at this time.

This accident could go one of two directions, either the brunt of the fault will be shouldered with the pickup truck that crossed over the highway, or the log truck is going to bear at some fault. Let’s focus on the log truck for now. If the log truck was following the CRV at a safe and appropriate distance, would it have smashed into the CRV when it was hit by the pickup truck? Fault in chain-reaction accidents can be difficult to determine because of conflicting, often competing theories, but if the log truck could have avoided making this accident substantially worse by following at a cautious distance, then the log truck company needs to answer for their role in the accident, however big or small it may be.

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.
