Police officer loses life in California truck accident

re are a number of reasons why truck accidents take place, such as an unqualified or drunk truck driver, negligent truck maintenance and more. These wrecks can claim lives and cause serious injuries, making life very difficult for those involved. In San Francisco and throughout California, people continue to experience hardships following a truck accident. These tragedies should remind drivers of how dangerous the roads can be and the importance of obeying traffic laws.

A recent accident involving a dump truck and a Los Angeles Police Department patrol vehicle claimed the life of an officer. The crash, which occurred in Beverly Hills, also left the driver of the truck and another officer critically injured.

It appears that the brakes on the truck may have failed and that they could be responsible for causing the wreck. Furthermore, the roads in that area are known for being considerably steep and difficult for truck drivers to manage. Surrounding roads were closed while authorities investigated the incident.

From speeding to defective auto parts, there are a number of factors that can play a role in truck accidents. Furthermore, when someone decides to take legal action, the unique details surrounding an incident could be very important. Not only do these accidents often cause significant physical and emotional suffering, but they can be very costly as well. With hospital bills, funeral expenses and even lost wages, victims of truck accidents sometimes struggle financially due to the crash. Anyone who is experiencing these issues and wants to move forward could benefit from talking to an attorney.

Truck Accident

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.
