Red Bluff UPS Truck Accident
I’m Ed Smith a Red Bluff car accident lawyer. A multi-vehicle accident involving a UPS box truck occurred during the early hours of the evening on Friday, March 31, 2017.
A motorist was sitting in their Subaru near the intersection of Kaer Avenue and West Avenue in Red Bluff when the vehicle was side-swiped by a UPS box truck. Officers from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) responded to the call to assist the motorists who were involved in the accident. The vehicle that was side-swiped by the UPS box truck was disabled and had to be towed from the scene.
When you or someone you love is involved in an auto accident that results in major vehicle damage or injuries you should always call and report the accident to local law enforcement so you can obtain a police report.
Were There Injuries?
Yes. There were minor injuries reported by the driver of the Subaru. As a precautionary measure paramedics were dispatched to the scene, it is unclear if the driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance or if he declined ambulance transport.
It is important for anyone involved in any sort of auto accident to remember that injuries may not always present themselves immediately following an the accident. It is a good idea to take it easy after you have been involved in an accident and watch for symptoms to present themselves.
Road Closures and Investigation
The areas of West Avenue and Kaer Avenue where the accident took place was closed to through traffic for a short amount of time while CHP officers conducted their initial investigation. At this time it is unclear if driving under the influence, road rage, or distracted driving were contributing factors in this collision. Often times when a commercial driver is involved in an accident, the company he or she drives for will also conduct an independent investigation.
