Irwindale: Woman Killed in Collision with Semi
Posted on Apr 27, 2011
Early this morning, a woman was killed in a collision with a semi truck on the 210 Freeway in Irwindale. The crash was triggered when the woman’s red sedan bounced off a guardrail and was struck by a semi, the impact fatally ejecting her from the vehicle. Three other people sustained injuries in the accident and were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, explains a California truck accident attorney.
Nationwide, a total of 24,474 vehicle occupants were killed and 2,011,000 injured in motor vehicle traffic accidents in 2009, the most recent year for which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released accident statistics. That year, police recorded more than 5.5 million crashes, 28 percent of which resulted in injury and less than 1 percent in death. Large trucks accounted for 7 percent of the vehicles involved in fatal crashes.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the woman who was killed in the collision with the semi truck this morning. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured.
