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.

Truck Accident Causes Gravel Spill Near Merced

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced truck accident attorney. An accident caused a tractor-trailer hauling gravel to overturn near Merced during the afternoon of June 18, 2018. A 70-year-old Merced man was driving a 2016 Peterbilt along West 16th Street and attempted to enter the on-ramp for Highway 99 south at approximately 25 to 30 mph. While doing so, the truck reportedly overturned, landed on the driver’s side of the vehicle and spilled its load of gravel along the highway. The trucker was transported via air ambulance to a hospital in Modesto as a safety precaution.
