California auto accidents: Second deputy killed

For the second time in just a few short months, a California sheriff's department has lost a deputy. The second fatality due to auto accidents has claimed another long-time employee for the department. The man was killed after his vehicle was hit from behind by a transport bus carrying a group of Tesla employees.

According to officials, the deputy was returning home after putting in an overtime shift at his job as a guard at the local jail. As he was traveling along a local highway, he purportedly slowed his speed, possibly due to the angle of the morning sun. However, the transport bus traveling behind him did not slow, and the larger vehicle slammed into the deputy's small Volkswagen

The collision caused the smaller car to be caved in upon itself. The driver was extricated from the wreckage, but he was pronounced deceased on the scene. He was one day away from his 51st birthday. This accident was the second involving a deputy being hit by a bus. Just short of three months earlier, another employee was hit and killed as he was walking along the road.

The driver of the bus in the most recent California crash stated that he could not see the small car in front of him as the sun obscured his view. In spite of that, he continued to travel at the posted speed. It is unclear whether he will face charges, but after these tragic auto accidents, the victims' families may choose to consult with a personal injury attorney. These wrecks not only cost lives, but they often result in enormous monetary losses from final expenses and lost wages. When successful, civil suits can help alleviate these burdens.
