An accident that happened last Wednesday morning left a woman severely injured, according to multiple news agencies.
An official memo issued by the California Highway Patrol shows that the 52-year-old woman was driving her 2011 Ford Fiesta on the eastbound lanes of the Highway 26 when her vehicle suddenly veered off, crossed into the westbound lanes and drove into the path of a two-axle Freightliner truck. According to the authorities, the truck driver attempted to swerve but unfortunately it was too late.
Both vehicles were traveling at about 40 miles per hour, according to the authorities. The woman was rushed to the hospital after the accident sustaining serious injuries while the truck driver didn’t sustain any wound as a result of this crash.
This collision that occurred just west of Hogan Dam Road is still under investigation.
As a Campbell personal injury lawyer, I’m terribly saddened to have learned about this news. I sincerely hope this woman is able to recover quickly and completely from all wounds she sustained in this crash. I’ve witnessed similar accidents caused by drowsy drivers and know they usually turn out to be fatal. I encourage drivers to remember that drowsy driving could be fatal. Never force yourself to drive if you feel you’re too tired to do so.
Keep it in mind that if you or a loved one is ever injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted or inattentive driver, you may want to consider asking a personal injury lawyer in your area about the legal options available to your case. Do not delay.
