Man killed in one of California's fatal trucking accidents

A 68-year-old man was killed in a crash which involved four other vehicles on a recent Friday afternoon. According to the California Highway Patrol, the man was operating a pickup truck that was involved in the wreck. The multiple-vehicle truck accident occurred near a rest stop, killing one driver while four others walked away with minor injuries. Trucking accidents are often a problem on California highways.

According to the report, a 60-year-old man driving a semi truck was headed eastbound when his vehicle apparently drifted off of the right shoulder of the highway. His semi clipped a vehicle, which caused his left-front tire to pop. The truck driver then lost control of his vehicle and sped into oncoming traffic.

As it swerved into the westbound lane, the semi slammed head-on into the victim's pickup, causing the pickup driver to suffer fatal injuries. The semi continued to move swiftly back and forth across the road, causing other wrecks with minor injuries. Traffic remained backed up in both directions for some time, according to CHP. It does not seem that drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

In the state of California, as in other states, those who have been injured or have had a loved one killed in trucking accidents may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for their loss. An experienced personal injury attorney can guide a client in how to file a suit for reimbursement of lost wages, medical bills and more.  Calling a personal injury lawyer could be the first step toward receiving the funds needed to take care of the financial difficulties of such a loss.
