Tractor-trailers serve an important purpose in California and across the country. Unfortunately, truck accidents pose a serious risk to both truck drivers and others on the roadways. For example, a collision between a rig and sedan has recently resulted in a fatality.

Police claim that a 53-year-old male was driving a silage truck on a California roadway in late August. Reports indicate that the driver of the truck attempted to make a left turn. However, he allegedly did not yield to an oncoming sedan driven by a 22-year-old man.

As a result, the sedan reportedly slammed into the truck’s front corner. The victim suffered critical injuries and was transported to the hospital by helicopter for treatment where he later died. While the driver of the truck is not suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, it remains under investigation. It is unclear what charges — if any — are expected to be filed as a result of the fatal accident.

Unfortunately, victims of truck accidents are all too familiar with their potentially deadly consequences. The family of the this man is likely grieving his loss. The fact that his death may have been completely preventable may increase their sense of loss. While they try to cope with their grief, they are likely also realizing the financial implications of his death, such as the costs of his funeral and medical care as well as the loss of his wages. An experienced attorney in California may be able to help identify all responsible parties — potentially including the driver and his employer — and help them pursue an appropriate legal response.
