The intersection between criminal law and the potential for a civil lawsuit when it comes to truck accidents has been demonstrated recently by a truck collision with a passenger vehicle in Fresno County, California.
The recent tragic collision in California between a FedEx truck and a bus carrying high school students has led to a civil lawsuit.
Few things can stop you in your tracks faster than being involved in a trucking accident where an inattentive driver ran a red light. Accidents caused by breezing through red lights can lead to higher insurance costs, lengthy hospital stays for a driver and any victims, and irreversible ramifications if another person is killed.
A tragic accident last week involving a FedEx truck and a motor coach resulted in 10 fatalities. Five high school students, three chaperones, one of whom was a newlywed from Orange County, and both drivers were killed in the collision. Dozens more were injured, including several who were hospitalized.
