When people in California and elsewhere drive too fast or recklessly, it puts them and all others on the road in danger. Too often, the accidents they cause result in serious injuries or worse to innocent and unsuspecting motorists; however, sometimes, the reckless driver bears the full repercussions of his or her actions behind the wheel. This seems to be the case in a recent vehicle collision that claimed the life of the alleged at-fault driver.
Details regarding the accident
Around 6:30 a.m. on April 25, a vehicle was headed along SR-163 near Genesee Avenue in San Diego. Officials with the California Highway Patrol stated that the Ford Fusion was speeding when it collided with the back of a city trash truck. The trash truck was reportedly driving at a much lower rate of speed.
The Ford Focus was being driven by a 24-year-old man. He suffered major injuries in the crash and was declared dead at the scene. He was apparently the only one in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
The report did not specify whether any of the occupants of the trash truck suffered injuries in this crash. If one or more of the sanitation workers suffered injuries in the accident, they can consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in California to gain a full understanding of their rights and options. Since the alleged at-fault driver died in the wreck, his estate can be named in a civil suit against as can anyone else who has ownership interest in his vehicle.
