Flying truck tire slams into California car, kills driver

Flying truck tire slams into California car, kills driver

Evidence that an injury or death did not have to happen may be no more apparent than when you hear about an unusual accident. It's clear, except for a convergence of bad timing and mystifying errors, the tragedy never had to occur. A bizarre truck accident, not unlike the ones just described, recently took place in Fresno.

A 22-year-old California woman died, after she was struck by a tire that came loose from a semi-truck on Highway 99. Investigators said the immense tire rolled across the road and smashed into the victim's Toyota Corolla, crushing the driver's side and roof.

Los Angeles trucking companies know the routes their drivers will take, the loads the trucks will bear and the mechanical conditions of the vehicles. A safety-conscious firm would not send a driver on a run along hilly or mountainous roads when there is any doubt about brake performance. Failing to take safety precautions is reckless.

Trucking companies are also responsible for the competency of the drivers they hire. The business can be liable for truck crash injuries and deaths caused by unqualified truck drivers. Companies must screen and monitor drivers to make sure safety regulations are followed.

A driver suddenly pulls in front of your car and forces you to slam on the brakes. Your quick action prevents a crash, while the other driver is oblivious to your effort. It takes an accident, an injury or someone's death for some negligent Los Angeles drivers to realize how thoughtless they are.

California Highway Patrol reported that a fatal accident in the Santa Monica McClure Tunnel was caused by a Panorama City truck driver who was going too fast. The 23-year-old driver sped into a curve and hit the brakes. The 18-wheeler struck the side of a Honda minivan carrying a Las Vegas family of seven – two parents with five children, ages 2 to 17.
