Elk Grove Garbage Truck Accident Kills Toyota Driver

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove garbage truck accident lawyer. A fatal collision near Elk Grove between a motor vehicle and garbage truck occurred on Tuesday, June 12, resulting in the death of one woman and trapping a man inside the vehicle. Crews trained to handle hazardous materials were sent to the site because of diesel fuel spilling from the truck, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

I would like to send my prayers and sympathy to the family and friends of the woman who was killed in the collision for their tragic loss.
