Even though it was the motorcyclist who hit the truck, it was the failure of the truck driver to obey the traffic signs that caused the accident. When situations like these occur, there is little time to react to avoid a collision. Due to the size difference in vehicles and the rate of speed, the magnitude of the accident was much more severe than your standard auto accident.
