Poor conditions cause multiple crashes on California freeway

There are many factors that can contribute to accidents on the road, from overloaded trucks to drunk drivers. However, poor driving conditions caused by inclement weather can be particularly dangerous. Truckers in San Francisco and throughout California should be aware of the hazards they face when behind the wheel and do everything they can to prevent another truck accident from occurring.

A recent incident, which took place on a Pasadena freeway just after midnight, involved three semi trucks and three additional vehicles. One trucker lost their life and two drivers were hospitalized due to the accident. Additionally, a truck driver died on the same freeway later in the morning.

The first accident left so much wreckage that personnel were still cleaning up the mess 12 hours later. Furthermore, cat litter had to be placed on diesel that had leaked out and spread over numerous lanes. Because train tracks ran down the middle of the freeway, train service was interrupted, prompting passengers to rely on a shuttle during the closure. There were a series of accidents in the region and this surge in traffic collisions came with wet road conditions due to a storm.

Not only are there many reasons why truck accidents take place, such as truck driver fatigue and faulty brakes, but they can cause a lot of problems for people as well. On top of the physical and emotional pain that can come with a crash, some people also have difficulty with funeral expenses and hospital bills. If you have been involved in a truck accident, talking to a legal professional could be a good idea.

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.
