Large trucks are heavy, sometimes difficult to navigate around and are surprisingly common features on most California highways and interstates. A truck driver was recently found to be at fault for causing a tragic accident that caused both fatal and serious injuries. However, there is still ongoing speculation about what actually occurred in the cab of the 18-wheeler.
In America's current economic and consumer climate, tractor-trailers and other large trucks play a critical role in moving goods across the country. For example, with the aid of large trucks, residents on the East Coast can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables from California during times of the year when the climate does not allow them to grow their own locally. Sadly, many drivers behind the wheels of these types of vehicles ignore important safety standards that are designed to keep everyone on the road as safe as possible. When those standards are ignored, serious injuries can result from truck accidents.
Navigating around 18-wheelers and other traffic can sometimes be difficult when traffic is at its finest, but when another vehicle makes a mistake, the results can be tragic. A recent truck accident involving multiple vehicles caused serious injuries and, sadly, one death. With the aid of eyewitness testimony, California police are continuing to investigate the initial cause of the wreck.
Tourists who may have been hoping for bright lights and exciting adventures suffered a much different experience while on their way to one city in California. After an early morning accident, four people were killed and several others sustained serious injuries. However, both of the drivers involved in the accident were uninjured.
