FRESNO, CA – According to the California Highway Patrol, a fast driver was ejected from her vehicle and sent to the hospital early on Saturday morning after colliding with a large truck. Just after 5:00 a.m., according to police, they were summoned to the scene of an injury crash on State Route 180, east of Clovis Avenue. They claim that is where they discovered Fresno resident Ceara Eldride, 19, who was suffering from injuries sustained when her Hyundai Elantra collided with a Peterbuilt semi-truck trailer.

According to investigators, Fresno resident Keith Miller, 62, was operating the vehicle when it was in the far right lane of Highway 180. Eldride, who was also in that lane at the time, approached the semi-truck at what police claim was a dangerous pace.

She couldn’t stop in time, so her car caught up to the Peterbuilt and slammed into the back of it. She was thrown out of her automobile as a result, according to the police. Eldride was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision, according to the police. Major wounds were present when she was taken to a nearby hospital.

According to the CHP, neither alcohol nor drugs appear to have been a factor in this collision.

Semi-Truck Accident Attorneys in California 

Every year, truck accidents cause injuries to more than 2,900 people in Southern California. Even though most truck accidents are avoidable, they continue to have a hugely negative impact on other drivers sharing the road. 

Commercial vehicles are much bigger than other vehicles, which heightens the odds of them causing serious injuries to victims involved in collisions with them. In many cases, victims sustain traumatic injuries that demand hospitalization, therapy, and numerous kinds of medical treatment both immediately and long-term. 

The physical and psychological repercussions of tractor-trailer accidents are almost always overwhelming. To make matters even worse, victims are typically forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical bills, go without an income because they are unable to work, and are forced to deal with various other financial burdens from their accidents.
