One motorist is dead and another driver suffered serious injuries in a head-on auto accident that occurred on August 10,2011‚ shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Bradshaw north of Elk Grove Boulevard. According to Elk Grove law enforcement officials‚ the incident involved a pickup truck and a cement truck.
Elk Grove Police spokesman Officer Christopher Trim reports that the driver of a white colored pickup truck drove across the double yellow line and entered into the southbound path of the cement truck head-on. The pickup truck suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. The cement truck driver suffered minor injuries.
Now the investigating officers need to determine what caused the pickup truck driver to lose control of his vehicle‚ whether he was speeding‚ distracted‚ or some other reason.
The injured cement driver should seek counsel from an experienced Sacramento County truck wreck lawyer to learn about his legal rights and options as well as help the injured victim obtain fair and timely compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ and other accident-related damages.
The pickup truck driver’s family may also be eligible to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs‚ loss of anticipated income‚ and loss of love‚ care and companionship. We trust that the investigating officers will be able to determine how or why this truck collision occurred.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the deceased victim for such a tragic loss. We also hope and pray that the injuries suffered by the other motorist heal soon.
