HESPERIA, California (May 1, 2013) – Helen Marie Bramasco, 53, of Hesperia was killed Tuesday night when her car was broadsided by the driver of a box truck at the intersection of Olive Street and C Avenue, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 11:25 a.m., Bramasco was driving her 1995 Buick Park Avenue southbound on C Avenue approaching the intersection of Olive Street when the truck driver heading eastbound crashed into her vehicle.

Bramasco was taken by ambulance to Loma Linda University Medical Center where she later died at 2:04 p.m., the report said.

The fatal truck accident is under investigation by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department MAIT Division.

“If you are injured or lost a loved one in a crash with a truck driver it’s important to contact an experienced truck accident attorney to secure your rights,” said Attorney West Thomas. “Indeed, an attorney who handles these types of cases knows for example that modern trucks are equipped with technology similar to a black box on an airplane that can be valuable evidence in a case, but only if it is preserved as evidence immediately after a crash.”

Arnold Hutchinson, 40, Identified as Victim of Multiple Truck Crash on SR-60 Freeway

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

DIAMOND BAR, California — Arnold Hutchinson, 40, of Mira Loma was killed Friday morning after he was pinned between a tractor trailer truck and a U-Haul truck after a third truck rear-ended the parked vehicles on the shoulder of the State Route 60 freeway, according to a report by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 11 a.m., Hutchinson was a passenger in a tractor trailer truck that was involved in a minor collision with the U-Haul truck. Both parties were exchanging information on the shoulder of the roadway and were standing in-between the two parked vehicles.

While they were exchanging insurance information, a second tractor trailer truck carrying a load of fruit veered off the roadway and struck the first tractor trailer truck. The big rig shifted forward and pinned Hutchinson, seriously injuring him. Paramedics transported Hutchinson and two others injured in the crash to nearby hospitals for treatment of their injuries.

Hutchinson was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for a higher level of care, but despite intervention he died the following day at 9:33 a.m., the report said.

The two who were hospitalized were critically injured with major trauma injuries in the crash.

“Motorists are not safe on the shoulder of our roadways, whether they are inside a car or outside a vehicle,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of the Thomas Law Firm. “Tragically these victims did not anticipate something like this happening. Police will investigate why the big rig’s driver veered off the roadway in an effort to determine liability.”
In the aftermath of the truck crash, Commuters sat in heavy traffic for hours as police investigated the fatal truck accident and cleaned up debris in the roadway as one of the trucks was carrying a load of bananas and tomatoes that littered the roadway.
