This accident invovled numerous vehicles but it appears that the box truck was solely at fault.  An accident such as this will likely give rise to a wrongful death claim against the driver of the box truck and possibly his employer as well.  In cases such as this, there are some important questions that must be asked such as how long the box truck driver had been on the road and whether he was properly trained to driver this type of truck.
