Sacramento Cement Truck Accident Kills Driver

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento trucking accident lawyer. Everyone who has been behind the wheel of a motor vehicle understands that accidents can happen; however, when accidents involve heavy equipment, such as a commercial  truck, accidents can become even worse. Every accident, from a single car accident to a multi-car pileup, can leave people injured or worse; however, disaster struck near Arena Boulevard in Sacramento when a cement mixer collided with a highway median. Unfortunately, the cement truck accident left one person dead.

Accidents Involving Commercial Trucks

Accidents Involving Commercial Trucks

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento trucking accident lawyer. Trucks are an important part of our nation’s economy — but when barreling down our roads and highways, they can often become deadly. We can thank manufacturers that put profit before safety and lax federal regulations for much of the danger. Personal trucks such as pickups aren’t held to the same standards of safety as passenger cars, even though they are often used for similar purposes. Large commercial trucks like eighteen-wheelers, tractor-trailers and big rigs weigh nearly 20 times as much as the standard passenger vehicle. It’s no wonder that they’ll crush smaller vehicles when involved in an auto accident. Worse, some trucking companies and truckers, in an effort to meet demanding delivery deadlines and to maximize their profits, ignore safety regulations.
