California delivery truck driver dies in collision

From driver inattention to illegal turns and overloaded freight, there are many reasons why truck accidents take place. Sadly, these incidents are sometimes fatal. In certain circumstances, trucks can pose a significant threat due to multiple factors, such as fatigued drivers and the sheer size of a semi. In San Francisco, busy roads can make matters worse, so drivers should always be aware of the risk of a truck accident in an urban area.

After colliding with an armored truck, a delivery truck driver lost his life and was determined to have died at the location of the crash. Although a passenger in the delivery truck was unable to escape at first, the fire department managed to extract the passenger, who was taken to a nearby hospital.

Although there is evidence to suggest the driver of the delivery truck rear-ended the other truck, an investigation into the incident is ongoing. Two people in the armored truck suffered minor injuries and turned down treatment. Officials have not released the identities of those involved in the accident.

When a semi truck accident takes place, it can create significant physical, emotional and even financial burdens for those involved. On top of the emotional pain families experience when they lose someone they care about, they could struggle to cover the funeral costs. Also, even if someone survives after being struck by a truck driver, they could have serious injuries that interrupt daily life (inability to work, run errands, etc.). If you have been involved in a truck crash and haven’t discussed the accident with an attorney, you could find it helpful to talk to a legal professional.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.

    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
