A 20-year-old woman suffered serious injuries when her scooter crashed into a truck on May 30‚ 2011‚ around 5:38 p.m. in the 3600 block of El Cajon Boulevard. According to police‚ the woman rear-ended a Toyota Tacoma and suffered a broken thigh bone.
The Toyota Tacoma had stopped to allow pedestrians to cross the street when this accident occurred. From the available information‚ it is unclear what made the female driver rear end the truck. Was there a loss of control? Was she distracted? Did the truck driver apply brakes suddenly? Answers to these questions will help the investigating officers to determine the exact cause of this crash.
If it is found that there was a mechanical failure that caused the accident and prevented the ride from braking‚ then the automaker will be held liable for the injuries suffered and selling a defective vehicle.
The injured victim should consult with an experienced El Cajon car accident lawyer who will advise her about her legal rights and options. In these cases‚ victims may be able to seek compensation to cover medical expenses‚ lost wages‚ cost of hospitalization‚ and other related damages.
Our office wishes the victim the best and hope that they she recovers from her injuries without long-term problems.
