On June 28, emergency crews were called to the scene of a crash that took place during the morning hours at the intersection of Butano Drive and Watt Avenue.
Reports from authorities indicate that an SUV and a tractor-trailer collided at the intersection. The incident prompted officials to close down the road as they worked to remove the damaged vehicles.
One person was left with injuries due to this truck crash. Medics responded to care for the injured party and transported them to a local hospital.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope the injured victim makes a timely recovery.
Each year, tens of thousands of people ultimately die as a result of accidents involving semi-trucks. Tens of thousands of other victims are left with significant injuries that alter their lives forever. Motor vehicle accidents involving semi-trucks have a higher likelihood of causing catastrophic injuries to victims. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles pose significant risks, often resulting in life-altering injuries for others involved.
Unfortunately, the majority of motor vehicle accidents are caused by negligent and reckless drivers. Common factors that contribute to accidents that we see here in California include speeding, drowsy driving, and impairment. Despite the preventable nature of these accidents, countless innocent victims continue to suffer serious injuries due to the actions of others.
In many cases, insurance companies representing the at-fault parties rush to offer minimal settlements to victims. These authors often fail to cover medical costs or provide any financial relief to victims who are left struggling to move forward. Instead of accepting a settlement offer from a self-serving insurance company, it is crucial for victims to seek the assistance of a truck accident attorney immediately. By doing so, they can take the necessary steps to protect their legal rights and seek the compensation they rightfully deserve.
A skilled and knowledgeable legal team will be able to handle the communication with the insurance company. They will fight to ensure the negligent driver is held accountable and that you are able to seek the maximum amount of compensation for the losses and damages that you face during the recovery process and moving forward.
