Have you seen a commercial truck make a turn? The truck driver must swing the truck out wide to the left before he can make a right turn. This maneuver can place the truck in the path of another vehicle. Furthermore, when making the right turn, the cab and trailer make a tight angle that can easily trap any vehicle in its path between the cab and trailer.
CBS Los Angeles reports that a man is in custody facing charges after a young boy died from injuries in a hit and run accident last week. The hit and run accident occurred at the intersection of Towne Avenue and 82nd Street in Florence, CA. The driver struck the 5-year old child twice before fleeing the accident scene. Surveillance video captured what appeared to be a green Suburban or Chevrolet Tahoe with front end damage.
