Vehicles or varying sizes fill the roadways in California and elsewhere. Many assert that more large trucks are seen during the holiday season, as many shipments and deliveries are expected to be made in time for a holiday celebration. Nonetheless, no matter what time of year it is, passenger vehicles frequently encounter large trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks. While it is common to share the road with these massive vehicles, large trucks do not operate and maneuver the same way passenger vehicles do. They must take wide turns, they have large blind spots and they cannot stop as quickly. These factors alone can be a major factor in a truck crash.
According to recent reports, a serious collision involving a sedan and a semi-truck occurred in Sane Diego. Reports indicated that the crash occurred on Interstate 805 during the nighttime hours. The accident occurred in the southbound lanes of I-805 near Adams Avenue. The California Highway Patrol stated that the driver of the Hyundai sedan suffered major injuries in the crash and was transported to the hospital for medical treatment.
Investigation is still ongoing in this matter, and speculations on how the crash occurred have not been reported at this time. Once investigation is complete, authorities will be able to establish the cause of the accident. Liability could also be understood as well, helping those injured in a crash to take action.
Following a car accident, a personal injury claim could help an injured victim hold a negligent driver liable. It also assists with the recovery of compensation, addressing losses such as medical bills, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, lost wages and other related damages.
