Avoiding Eureka Trucking Accidents

Avoiding Eureka Trucking Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Eureka truck accident lawyer. Large trucks owned by trucking companies play a significant role in California’s economy. In fact, the California Department of Transportation has reported that more than three-quarters of communities across the state rely on commercial trucks to deliver them essential goods. Unfortunately, the more trucks there are on the road, the higher the chances are that a severe trucking accident will happen. Because commercial vehicles are so large, the damage they cause during collisions can be extremely severe and injured individuals are often left with serious or even fatal trauma. For this reason, it is essential to know the best ways to avoid being involved in an accident with a large truck.

Merced County Truck Accident Fatally Injures Three

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced truck accident attorney. A grandmother and her two grandchildren were left with fatal injuries after a truck accident near Los Banos on July 17, 2018. At approximately 1:55 in the morning, a 56-year-old Ontario man was driving a 2011 Freightliner northbound along Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Taglio Road. For unknown reasons, the trucker failed to stop in time as traffic slowed near an unrelated crash and rear-ended a 2012 Dodge Caravan. The impact reportedly propelled the Dodge into the center median, causing three of the five parties inside to succumb to their injuries at the scene.
