California truck accident claims life

Accidents happen. Many times, the accident is minor, and no one is injured. At other times, a California accident is serious, and people are injured or killed. The severity of the accident depends upon a number of factors, one of which being whether it is a truck accident.

Recently, an accident involving a rented box truck injured several and killed one individual. Apparently, the driver of the box truck slammed into the rear of a vehicle waiting in line at a toll booth. The force of this collision caused a number of vehicles to collide. It also caused one vehicle to crash into the toll booth. This collision killed the toll booth operator and five others caught in this collision were transported to the hospital for medical attention.

The driver of the box truck and his passenger were ejected from the truck and also suffered injury. Initial police reports suggest that the driver had been drinking. He has been arrested and charged with DUI as well as vehicular manslaughter in the death of the toll booth worker.

In a truck accident such as this one, the driver will have to answer for his actions in a California criminal court. Additionally, it is possible that the families of those injured or killed will seek remedy in a California civil court. In addition to the emotional toll this accident will have on these families, there will be a number of financial ones. In a situation such as this one, an experienced attorney can assist in determining the appropriate course of action.
