Shortly before 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, two people were injured in a collision between a dump truck and a semi in San Marcos. The Staples office-supply semi collided with the truck at the intersection of Craven Drive and South Twin Oaks Valley Road, the impact causing both trucks to overturn, the dump truck spilling its load of rocks onto the road. Emergency responders transported both drivers to area hospitals. The accident is under investigation.
“Collisions involving large trucks can result in serious trauma due to the size and weight of the vehicles,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis. “Those who are injured in such accidents may file personal injury claims against the negligent driver in order to obtain compensation for the cost of their recoveries.”
San Marcos accounted for none of the 126 fatalities and 308 of the 15,939 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred in San Diego County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 8 of the fatal and 228 of the injury accidents that occurred in the county that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two drivers who were injured in the collision between the dump truck and the semi.
