Unsafe Truck Driver? Tractor-Trailer Crosses Lanes, Jack-Knifes, and Kills 25-year-old Juan Alvarado-Martinez

Local news reports that on May 27, 2022, a crash involving a semi-truck happened along I-80 in Nevada near mile marker 267 around 11 p.m. The crash site was located in Eureka County, about 12 miles west of Carlin. According to Nevada State Troopers, the driver of the semi-truck was driving too fast for conditions, causing him to lose control of the truck.

Initially, the semi-truck hit a guardrail, which sent the truck across a highway lane, causing it to hit another guardrail. The truck then jack-knifed, blocking the shoulder and both travel lanes on the highway. Meanwhile, a sedan driven by 25-year-old Juan Alvarado-Martinez of Salt Lake City, UT crashed into the semi-truck. Passengers in the sedan were injured. The Nevada Highway Patrol continues to investigate the incident.

What Evidence Matters?

Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, an experienced truck accident lawyer, represents victims injured or killed in semi-truck accidents. Below, Attorney Mickelsen shared his insight into the legal options available to victims injured in commercial truck accidents.

  • Dash Cam Video
  • Witness statements and contact information
  • Photographs from the scene
  • Electronic black box data from all vehicles involved
  • Vehicle inspections
  • Hours of service logs
  • Toxicology reports

Professional Drivers:

Attorney Mickelsen adds, “Based on the news articles, it appears the driver of the semi-truck was driving too fast in wet conditions, which caused him to lose control of the vehicle. Drivers of commercial vehicles are held to a higher standard because they are professional drivers – they have specialized licenses, are subject to federal and state regulations, and are operating inherently dangerous vehicles. The fact that the driver did not slow his semi-truck until the conditions cleared is irresponsible and reckless.”
