Acton: Multiple-Vehicle Crash Involving Semi Injured 17
Posted on Jun 26, 2012
Shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26th, a multiple-vehicle crash involving a semi injured 17 people on the 14 Freeway in Acton. The semi, which was hailing at least 25 tons of sand, and 19 other vehicles collided near the Escondido Canyon Road exit. The injured were transported to the hospital, with those with more severe trauma taken first. About 50 firefighters responded to the scene of the accident, which caused the closure of all southbound lanes and two northbound ones.
“When motor vehicle occupants are injured in a collision, they may seek compensation for the cost of their recovery from the at-fault driver,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Traffic accidents claimed the lives of 390 passenger vehicle occupants and injured another 64,178 in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 46 of the fatal and 1,464 of the injury crashes 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 17 people who were injured in the multiple-vehicle crash involving the semi today.
