Tulare, CA – A Man Died After Crashing Into a Box Truck in Tulare County
TULARE, Calif (December 16, 2021) – According to the California Highway Patrol, a driver died in Tulare County after crashing into a box truck on Thursday morning.
Visalia CHP officers responded to a traffic collision around 3:30 a.m. on Road 112 south of Avenue 164. An International box truck was driving southbound on Road 112 south of Avenue 164 with a Toyota sedan traveling at a high rate of speed “directly behind” it when the crash occurred.
CHP says that the Toyota driver was unable to avoid striking the rear of the International due to its unsafe speed. The driver of the Toyota sustained major injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he later died. According to authorities, the box truck driver sustained a minor injury to his back, but was not transported to the hospital.
Officials with the California Highway Patrol say alcohol hasn’t been ruled out as a cause of the crash, and the cause is still unclear.
It can be devastating for both the victims and their families if they are involved in a car accident. Each year, there are more than 270,000 car accidents in our state. As much as we wish everyone would be able to walk away from accidents without any issues, this is not always the case. Automobile accidents claim the lives of more than 3,200 people each year in California. Human error is largely to blame for these accidents. Most vehicle collisions occur because of reckless driving, negligence, speeding, driving while impaired, and other careless actions.
It is never easy to lose a loved one. If your loved one died in a preventable accident, it is heartbreaking. Thousands of dollars in medical expenses, property damage, funeral services, and more must also be incurred by families. After losing a loved one in an accident caused by another’s negligence, families may wish to acquire legal advice from a wrongful death attorney in California.
