One person was killed and two others suffered serious injuries in a truck accident on June 15‚ 2011‚ around 12:03 a.m. on northbound 101 Freeway (US-101N) near Camarillo Springs Road. According to Ventura County Fire Department Chief Chad Cooke‚ the big rig driver lost his brakes at the bottom of a steep grade and slammed into another truck‚ causing it to overturn and spill the asphalt it was carrying. One trucker was killed.
Three to four other vehicles were involved in this crash. From the available information‚ it is evident that trucking accident occurred due to a mechanical failure. Therefore‚ the employer of the big rig driver may be held liable for the wrongful death and injuries suffered by other victims.
Though the investigation is in process‚ the victims’ family members should consult with an experienced Ventura County trucking accident lawyer who would assure that they obtain timely and fair compensation to cover cost of funeral and burial‚ loss of earnings‚ loss of love and companionship‚ and other accident-related expenses.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the truck driver for such a disturbing loss. We also hope and pray that the injuries suffered by the other injured victims do not prove life-threatening and heal soon.
