The horror of trucking accidents becomes evident once again

A recent hit-and-run accident on a California highway has left two people injured. The accident, which happened on a Thursday evening in August, is an illustration of how trucking accidents impact lives. The accident happened just before 11:00 p.m.

California Highway Patrol reports that a collision between a vehicle, truck and trailer resulted in the truck bursting through the guardrail on the overpass and landing on the roadway below. The driver of the vehicle causing the accident sped away from the accident scene but was later arrested. The arrested hit-and-run driver was charged with driving under the influence and hit-and-run. 

When the semi-truck hit the roadway below the overpass, the trailer separated. Three other cars were struck before the huge vehicle came to a stop and flames appeared. Fortunately, bystanders were able to pull the trapped truck driver to safety before the truck starting burning. The truck driver was admitted to a hospital in serious condition. Only one other driver suffered minor injuries in the accident.

Regardless of the outcome of the criminal case, the seriously injured truck driver has the option to file a personal injury claim against the reckless hit-and-run driver. California civil law allows for personal injury claims in cases where the recklessness or negligence of a person results in injury to another party. A consultation with a personal injury lawyer may benefit victims of negligence, as such a lawyer is in the ideal position to evaluate the merits of each individual case. A successfully litigated case may result in an award of financial damages.
