Large Truck Crash Injures Mother And Child

Posted By The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, P.C. Posted in: Truck Accident.

We are learning of a crash that happened in the southbound lanes of Interstate 805 just north of Adams Avenue on December 17. When first responders got to the scene, they saw that a semi truck had stalled on the roadway. A pickup truck was stopped behind the stalled semi when a car slammed into the back of it. As a result, a mother and her child were transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.

At Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, we know that there are many ways in which people can get hurt when they are driving their vehicles. Some of the worst accidents happen when large commercial trucks are involved. If you need a San Diego truck accident attorney, call us today.

What Can Happen?

We know that you see many large commercial trucks in and around San Diego on a daily basis, but you probably do not pay much attention to them. Unfortunately, if something goes wrong with these trucks the results can be disastrous. Consider some of the following types of trucks:

  • Eighteen wheelers
  • Dump trucks
  • Cement trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Package delivery trucks

Now think about how large they are and how much they weigh, especially when they are carrying a full load of goods. For the latest reporting year in this country, the number of large trucks involved in fatal crashes increased three percent from the year before.

It is vital that truck owners regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles to prevent any problems.

Driver Negligence

Truck drivers can also become a danger if they are negligent behind the wheel. Some of the most dangerous things a driver can do behind the wheel include:

  • Choosing to ignore laws and regulations regarding how many hours they are allowed to drive and how much weight they can carry at a time.
  • Driving while distracted by their phones or other devices while they are operating.
  • Operating the truck while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Driving at a high rate of speed.

If a truck is carrying hazardous material, then a crash could endanger the lives of thousands of people.
