Yesterday morning, six people were injured in a truck accident at a Yoshinoya restaurant in Koreatown. The incident occurred at the intersection of Normandie Avenue and Beverly Boulevard when a flatbed tow truck crashed into the front of the restaurant, the impact sending one woman across the room and injuring some of the employees. A witness reported that she heard the driver tell occupants of the eatery that his brakes had failed, according to a California truck accident attorney.
Los Angeles County accounted for 46 of the 236 fatal and 1,464 of the 4,874 injury motor vehicle traffic collisions involving trucks in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s most current statistics. Nationwide, such accidents claimed 3,380 lives and injured 74,000 people, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the six people who were injured in Yoshinoya yesterday a full recovery.
