Shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday, November 11, a hit-and-run semi crash seriously injured a motorist in Santa Fe Springs, reported the Orange County Register. The Peterbilt truck driver—64-year-old Ciriaco Menendez, of Garden Grove—failed to observe a stop sign at the end of an off-ramp of the 605 Freeway, made an illegal turn in front of a Chevrolet, and caused a collision. Menendez fled the scene but was later apprehended and arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run. Emergency responders transported the driver of the Chevrolet to an area hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. 


Santa Fe Springs accounted for 3 of the 346 fatalities and 425 of the 62,881 injuries motor vehicle occupants suffered in collisions that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 47 of the crashes that resulted in death and 1,535 of those that caused injury that year in Los Angeles County.


Collisions involving semi trucks often result in major trauma. California law ensures that those who have been injured in traffic accidents may hold the at-fault parties liable for the expenses related to their recoveries by filing civil claims.

Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the motorist who was seriously injured in the hit-and-run semi crash.
