Shortly before 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2, at least one person was injured in a semi crash in Santa Clarita. The collision between the semi and another truck occurred on the southbound 5 Freeway at Magic Mountain Parkway, the impact causing the tanker to spill milk onto the roadway and forcing the closure of all lanes for a short span of time. The accident is under investigation.
“Collisions involving large trucks can result in major trauma to those involved,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis. “In such cases, state law ensures the victims may hold the at-fault party liable for the expenses associated with their recoveries, such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
In 2010, 796 people were killed or injured in motor vehicle collisions that occurred in Santa Clarita, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Large trucks were involved in 47 of the fatal and 1,535 of the injury crashes that occurred in Los Angeles County that year, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the person who was injured in the semi crash.
