Cleveland National Forest: Three Injured When Truck Rolled Over
Posted on May 21, 2012
Shortly before 12:40 p.m. on Thursday, May 17th, three people were injured when their truck rolled over in the Cleveland National Forest. The accident occurred on Trabuco Creek and Holy Jim Canyon roads, with one of the passengers suffering major trauma after being ejected from the vehicle. The passenger was airlifted to a local hospital for treatment, while the other two occupants were transported by ambulance. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“When passengers are hurt in a collision, the at-fault driver may be liable for the expense of treating their injuries and for other costs associated with their recovery,” explained an auto accident lawyer in Orange County.
