Two people were killed in an accident involving a big-rig in the San Bernardino desert near Red Mountain Road recently.
The 31-year old woman from Long Beach was traveling north on Highway 395. Also killed was the 49-year old trucker, also from Long Beach. According to California Highway Patrol officers, neither were wearing their seat belts. A 27-year old survivor from Texas was flown to Loma Linda Medical Center with major injuries.
It was reported that the big-rig ran off the road, spilling more than 2,000 gallons of used motor oil that it was carrying. The fatal accident is under investigation to determine what caused this to happen.
Once investigators determine what happened, I urge the families to contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is skilled in trucking accidents to see if they are entitled to compensation for their loss, expenses and pain and suffering.
