When doing collision detection and response -- is it *necessary* to first find the *closest* colliding triangle before pushing back and recursing, or can you just push back on the first collision triangle you find?

So I'm trying to figure out the proper way to handle collision response and iteration in a case like this . . . I keep ending up getting pushed through the floor by the diagonal wall:
can you maybe review this collision detection/response logical pseudocode and possibly point out any fundamental flaws?
checkTriangles(start, end): collision_distance = infinity collision_occured = false for triangle in triangles: if check_collision( triangle ): if triangle_distance < collision_distance || collision_occured == false: collision_distance = triangle_distance collision_triangle = triangle collision_occured = true if collision_occured: end += collision_triangle->normal * pushback_factor checkTriangles(start,end)
