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.
