A white, older model pick truck went over the side of the 55 freeway this afternoon according the CHP reports. The solo truck accident occurred at around 1:52 p.m., but at the point of the report, did not have a verifiable cause. Witnesses indicated that the pickup truck had been traveling in the carpool lane of the 55 when it veered and suddenly hit the center divider.  The vehicle then went airborne, flipped and wound up on Dyer. The unidentified pick up truck driver had to be cut from his truck via the Jaws of Life. Roughly 10 to 15 cars pulled onto the right shoulder of highway to look, slowing traffic.

Indeed, an accident of this type must have been quite a spectacle, but the poor man trapped in his truck was probably terrified. Upon his visit to the hospital, he probably learned he was seriously injured to boot.  What’s more, he may be confused as to how the accident occurred, especially if the wreck was proceeded by a malfunction of some sort.  Needless to say, if the truck accident was caused by a defective auto part, the individual could be entitled to damages.

Sometimes a solo accident is not the fault of the driver—it is the fault of a car manufacturer who places faulty brakes, shoddy electrical of a untrustworthy engine in the vehicle.  When this occurs, lives can put at risk.  If you or a loved one has been injured because of an automakers disregard for safety, contact our expert product liability lawyers.  They will help you understand your rights via a free legal consultation and help you recover the financial damages you need after a crippling car crash.
