Truck Accident Injures Woman Near Merced

A woman suffered injuries in a recent truck accident involving two large commercial trucks near Merced. The incident occurred shortly before 3:30 p.m. along the southbound lanes of Highway 99, just north of Applegate Road. A woman from Atwater was driving her 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV southbound along Highway 99 when she was involved in a crash with a big rig. Officials said the collision caused a second tractor-trailer to strike the rear of the Chevrolet. This propelled the SUV over the western side of the highway and down an embankment. The two drivers of the big rigs were uninjured in the crash while the woman driving the Chevrolet complained of pain. It is unknown whether she was hospitalized for her injuries.

Three Injured in Merced County Truck Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced truck accident lawyer. A truck accident occurred west of Los Banos on August 17th and left a man and two teenagers with severe injuries. A 33-year-old Fresno man was driving a 2010 Volvo big rig while hauling a container trailer along Highway 152 in the vicinity of Volta Road at approximately 4:08 a.m. The trucker reportedly fell asleep while behind the wheel, causing the Volvo to drift out of the traffic lanes and into the center median. The trucker woke up and attempted to correct the big rig, however, it was too late as the big truck slid across the roadway and overturned on its left side. Emergency responders at the scene transported the truck driver via medical helicopter to the Memorial North Hospital in Modesto for treatment of major injuries. The two passengers of the big rig, identified as 14-year-old and 16-year-old males, were taken to the Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera to be treated for unknown injuries. Authorities have not yet publicly released an update on the conditions of the three parties involved in the truck accident.
