An out of control pickup truck rammed into a house and burst a natural gas line on September 14‚ 2010‚ forcing the inhabitants to evacuate the home. This truck accident occurred in the 11000 block of Polaris Drive in the Mira Mesa neighborhood of San Diego around 7:00 p.m.
A woman present in the house at the time of the crash suffered serious injuries and was transported to the trauma center for emergency care and evaluation. Medics present at the accident scene found that the truck driver suffered from some kind of medical ailment which might have lead to this truck accident.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department officials evacuated everyone out of the damaged home and ten neighboring homes so that they could halt the gas supply to prevent leakage.
From the present facts‚ it seems that truck driver’s inattentiveness and/or medical condition lead to this truck accident. There are many questions that arise. Was the truck driver fit to drive? Was he under any influence of drugs or alcohol? If the truck driver was not medically fit to drive‚ then why was his driving license not cancelled by the authorities. He might also be held liable to compensate the injured woman for her medical costs and the homeowners for the damage caused to their home.
We sincerely hope and pray that the injured woman did not sustain any life-threatening injuries and recovers her health soon. When she returns from the hospital and is up to meeting with a professional about this accident‚ she would be smart to consult with a San Diego truck accident lawyer who could help her get fair compensation.
