Yuba City Man Severely Injured in Fatal Crash
I’m Ed Smith, a Yuba City car accident lawyer. A recent rollover accident that involved two large semi trucks left one person with fatal trauma. The crash also injured three others, including a vehicle passenger from Yuba City who was reported to have received significant injuries. California Highway Patrol (CHP) said that this collision took place on Highway 58 close to Kramer Junction on Thursday, May 17, 2018. The fatally injured man was identified as Amanpreet Singh, a 25-year-old Fresno resident. The Yuba City man was identified as the decedent’s relative, 32-year-old Kulwinder Singh. My condolences are extended to those who are currently mourning their loss after this tragic collision.
Authorities reported that the collision took place at about 3:28 a.m. on Highway 58 to the east of the Highway 395 intersection. CHP said that Amanpreet Singh had been driving east inside of a 2015 white-colored Volvo semi truck with Amanpreet as a passenger in the sleeper cabin. At the same time, a 58-year-old woman and resident of Tucson had been driving west on the same highway in a 2018 Freightliner.
CHP reports that the Volvo suddenly veered to the left for unknown reasons. After the vehicle veered, it crashed into the oncoming Freightliner. The accident reportedly caused one of the trucks’ trailers to rupture and spill more than 15 tons of jalapenos onto the highway.
Responders at the accident site stated that Amanpreet Singh was found with fatal injuries. Sadly, the man was officially declared deceased before he could be taken to a hospital. Kulwinder Singh was discovered with serious injuries and medics had him taken by helicopter ambulance to a nearby emergency care center.
The Freightliner driver, as well as a 68-year-old man who had been a passenger in her vehicle, were both found with moderate-level injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated. No additional injuries were reported.
Collisions that involve large trucks are very dangerous and often cause significant trauma. Because these trucks are so large and liable to cause injuries, truck companies are typically fast to send out legal teams to disclaim responsibility for the accident. This makes it even harder for those who’ve been injured or lost a loved one to obtain the money that they deserve for the damages they have suffered.
Calling an attorney who is experienced in handling truck accidents can help. A good lawyer can prevent trucking companies from covering up key evidence and will help you know what you are able to claim for your losses.
