California trucker apprehended after deadly crash

For some truck drivers, the demands of their job can be overwhelming at times. Whether they suffer from truck driver fatigue due to lack of sleep, don’t have freight properly secured or make unsafe lane changes, these factors continue to contribute to truck accidents in San Francisco and throughout the state. Additionally, most drivers are well of aware of the sheer size of semis and how difficult it can be for truck drivers to stop, which can increase both the likelihood and severity of a crash. As a result, truck drivers and everyone else on the road should be cautious and remember the dangers.

After colliding with two vehicles, the driver of a semi left the scene of the crash. However, someone who witnessed the accident followed the truck and asked the trucker to stop. According to this witness, the truck driver would not admit to hitting any other vehicle and took off on foot.

Next, the witness contacted the authorities, who were able to track down and apprehend the trucker. One person died and two were injured in the accident, which took place at roughly 2:15 a.m. in Fontana.

When a semi truck accident occurs, it can wreak havoc on those who are involved. On top of truckers and the occupants of other vehicles, a crash could even impact the company the truck driver works for. For example, if they hired an unqualified truck driver or were not following federal trucking regulations, the legal consequences could be stressful, costly and overwhelming. Anyone who is struggling to move forward after a truck crash could find value in reaching out 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.
