A 56-year old man working on his disabled truck on the shoulder of Interstate 15 was killed when a big-rig passing by struck him.
The victim was taken to a local hospital where he died shortly later.
The accident is under investigation to determine why this fatal accident occurred. Officers are trying to determine if the man was not completely off the freeway and why the big-rig driver hit him. Pending results of the investigation, if the big-rig driver is found to be at fault, it would be wise for the family of the victim to contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is successful in pursing trucking companies on behalf of victims and their families to file a wrongful death claim against the driver and his or her employer to seek compensation for expenses.
