Ventura County Truck Collisions Kills One Driver and Injures Other

One pickup truck driver was killed and another suffered serious injuries in a truck collision that occurred on July 24‚ 2011‚ around 7:16 p.m. at the intersection of Championship Drive and Walnut Canyon Road in Moorpark.

According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Rick Hindman‚ both the trucks collided due to an unknown reason‚ leaving a 60-year-old Moorpark man injured and the other driver dead. The injured truck driver was transported to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks immediately after the responding officials extricated him out of his vehicle.

From the limited available information‚ it is unclear what lead to this fatal truck crash. As it was a two-vehicle collision‚ any one of the drivers might have been at fault. Investigating officers need to determine whether one of the drivers was fatigued‚ distracted‚ driving under the influence of drugs‚ or speeding.

Regardless of the reason‚ deceased’s family members should seek counsel from an experienced Ventura County truck accident lawyer who would let them know their legal rights and obtain a fair and timely compensation to cover funeral and burial costs‚ loss of anticipated earnings‚ loss of love‚ care and companionship‚ and other accident-related damages.

The injured truck driver is also eligible to obtain compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related expenses.

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 truck driver heal soon and do not prove life threatening.
