A 55-year old Caltrans truck driver attempting to enter traffic from the right shoulder on Interstate 15 in Victorville the other afternoon was almost hit by a big-rig. The big-rig swerved to avoid hitting the smaller truck and instead sideswiped another vehicle.
The sideswiped vehicle managed to pull off the freeway and onto the right shoulder. The driver of the big-rig lost control and hit a Cal Fire van and then an unoccupied Caltrans pickup truck that was on the right shoulder. The big-rig proceeded off the freeway and ended up crashing through the front door of a furniture store.
Several people were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the chain-reaction accident to determine how it happened. If you are injured in a freeway accident, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate the case, make sure the at-fault driver is held liable, and seek compensation for your injuries and expenses.
