Crash Fatally Injures Delhi Man
I’m Ed Smith, a Turlock car accident lawyer. An accident involving a pickup truck and a big rig occurred northwest of Delhi on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. The crash, unfortunately, claimed the life of a Delhi man.
We extend our deepest thoughts and condolences to the loved ones of the man that passed away in this tragic trucking accident.
A Delhi man was driving his 1998 Dodge Ram along Bradbury Road. For unknown reasons, the Dodge veered into the oncoming lane of travel. An approaching big rig was unable to avoid the Dodge in its path, resulting in a severe head-on collision. The impact caused the man to be pinned inside his vehicle.
Was Anybody Injured?
Emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of the crash. When they arrived, they located the injured party of the Dodge Ram. They extricated the man inside the Dodge and transported him via air ambulance to the Doctors Medical Center in Modesto. Sadly, the man succumbed to his injuries during treatment. The Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office later identified the man as 53-year-old Russell Robinson from Delhi.
What Caused the Crash?
The cause of the crash has not yet been determined. Authorities usually take one to two weeks from the date of the accident to process a Traffic Collision Report. Traffic reports can play a big role in determining liability in a car accident. However, such reports can be inconclusive or contain error pertaining to fault. It is crucial, especially when a party has suffered fatal injuries, to contact an experienced Turlock car accident lawyer. A seasoned attorney can investigate the scene of the accident and study the sequence of events leading up to the collision to properly pinpoint causation.
Truck Driver Responsibilities
Truck operators are obligated to act responsibly when driving for extended periods of time. Failure to do so can result in serious consequences to others on or near the roadways. The most common causes of trucking accidents include the following:
- Distracted Driving
- Driver Fatigue
- Overloaded or Improperly Loaded Cargo
- Poor Truck Maintenance
Collisions with large trucks can result in devastating consequences. The repercussions of these tragedies can last a lifetime. Consult with an experienced Turlock personal injury lawyer for more information.
