Three Injured in Crash with Big Rig Tractor Trailer Truck on Highway 33 at Fruit Avenue
PATTERSON, California (August 22, 2013) – Two juveniles and one adult were injured Thursday morning after their vehicle collided with the driver of a big rig truck on the State Route 33 at Fruit Avenue in Stanislaus County, according to a dispatch report by the California Highway Patrol.
About 7:30 a.m., CHP officers reported there was at least one person pinned in the wreckage and they were ordering the closure of the State Highway 33 between Fruit Avenue and Magnolia Avenue for a helicopter landing. The injured were taken by air ambulance to a nearby trauma center for treatment of what appears to be critical injures.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort the family and friends of these injured people as they cope with news of this terrible accident,” Attorney West Seegmiller said. “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them as they recover and try to piece together what happened.”
Indeed, police investigate all crashes involving serious injuries to determine liability including taking measurements, photographing the accident scene, speaking with anyone involved in the accident. Witnesses will also help officers as they put together their police report.
“Whenever there are injuries involved in a big rig truck accident, the trucking companies will send out representatives to gather key evidence to support their version of what happened in an accident,” Seegmiller said. “There are always two sides to every accident, but it’s best to arm yourself with an attorney who specializes in trucking accidents and knows the industry.”
