An accident involving a big rig carrying cows resulted in no injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol and several local news sources.
The official release issued by the California Highway Patrol troopers have showed that a big rig trailer was attempting to turn out of an embankment and onto the lanes of the Highway 20 heading west when the vehicle’s trailer suddenly tipped over its side. The accident happened about six mules east of Highway 53, according to the news.
Amidst the mess, eight cows escaped from a large crack in the top of the trailer. The remaining cattle didn’t appear to sustain any injuries according to the official report. Dogs will be used to locate the livestock that’s gone missing.
The CHP says the driver didn’t sustain any injuries as a result of this crash.
As a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer, I’m glad this accident didn’t turn out to be fatal. I hope the driver is able to recover the missing livestock in a timely manner. I encourage large rig drivers to remember to always pay attention to traffic and roadways to ensure a crash like this doesn’t occur in the future.
Keep it in mind that if you or a dear friend is ever injured as a result of an accident that was caused by the inattention or recklessness of another driver, you might want to consider asking a personal injury lawyer in your area to assess your case promptly.
