Victims and their families want answers to help them understand why and how accident injuries or deaths occurred. The story behind a truck crash can take time to develop fully. Investigators look beyond driver error for evidence of negligence, which may include an ignored mechanical problem.
Initial reports about a Beverly Hills dump truck accident seem to point to negligent truck maintenance. The truck driver apparently could not control the vehicle, as it skidded along a street and crashed into a Los Angeles Police Department patrol car. The roll-off truck overturned, after rendering the police car almost unrecognizable.
