Child Struck by Garbage Truck in North Park
A 9-year-old boy was injured in a shocking truck accident that occurred on November 17, 2011, around 1:15 p.m. at Kansas Street in North Park. According to San Diego police, a city garbage truck struck boy while he was skating along Meade Avenue. The juvenile fell under the trash truck and was crushed by the undercarriage, according to police.
Medics transported the boy to receive medical treatment for the life-threatening internal injuries and multiple compound fractures. From the available information, it is unclear what led to this serious truck wreck. The accident is under investigation. If it is found that the truck driver was driving negligently or recklessly, then he and the City might be held liable for the injuries suffered by the child.
Meanwhile, the injured juvenile’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County truck accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. This lawyer may also help victims obtain compensation to cover treatment, medical and hospital costs.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the young boy do not prove fatal or have long-term effects.
