Three people suffered major injuries in a serious multiple vehicle accident that occurred on May 3‚ 2011‚ around 8 a.m. on southbound I-15 at Carroll Canyon Road. The California Highway Patrol Officers responding to this motor vehicle accident report that the rear axle fell off a tractor-trailer rig on to the freeway‚ causing this truck accident.
Officers report that three other vehicles‚ including two pickups and a sedan were involved in this truck accident. It is reported that the two pickup truckss and a small car collided with each other or with the semi tractor-trailer. The impact was so strong that it demolished the car and one pickup. Three injured victims were immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. From the available information‚ it is clear that the mechanical fault in the truck lead to this serious truck accident.
The truck driver‚ or his employer in this case‚ will likely be held responsible for the injuries suffered by the victims if it can be shown that they knew or should have know that the vehicle was not properly maintained and inspected. Otherwise‚ the accident was most likely due to mechanical failure. The injured victims should consult with an experienced truck accident lawyer in San Diego to obtain compensation for medical treatment and hospitalization costs‚ loss of earnings‚ damage done to the vehicles‚ and other accident related damages.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the victims do not prove fatal and that they recover completely from the injuries.
