It’s not always easy determining who is at fault in a vehicle accident. Usually, whenever a vehicle gets rear-ended by another, the driver who rear-ended is at fault. However, in this accident, the pickup truck driver is at fault. The pickup driver must have partaken in negligent behavior, causing him to not accurately scan his surroundings before backing out. Truck drivers are required to follow specific federal regulations that help promote roadway safety. Since one of the police officers suffered injuries, it’s likely that the officer will file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an attorney.
