A truck towing a trailer stopped at the Yermo agricultural inspection station to be inspected. A woman inspector had just finished inspecting the truck and gave permission for it to move on.
For no apparent reason, she stepped into the path of the trailer as it was preparing to leave the station, and was hit, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver of the truck stopped after hitting the victim. The employee was taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries sustained.
California Highway Patrol is investigating to determine why the employee stepped in the path of the truck and trailer. Depending on who was at fault, I suggest the two parties involved contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to make sure his or her rights are protected.
