Glendora Collision Involving Pickup Truck and Tractor-Trailer Results in Fatalities

Collisions involving two vehicles may result in severe injuries and death. The risks of fatalities may increase if one of the vehicles involved is heavier and bigger than the other one.

At least three women have died after the Nissan pickup truck they were riding in was struck by a Wal-Mart tractor trailer, causing it to catch fire. The accident occurred along the southbound Orange (57) Freeway.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers, the three women were still inside the pickup when it burst into flames.

Both the pickup and big rig drivers did not sustain fatal injuries due to the crash.

For more information about vehicle accidents and wrongful death, do not hesitate to contact a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.

  1. I advice vehicle owners to have their gas tank undergo safety maintenance to ensure it can withstand adverse road conditions. Doing so, will prevent a likely fiery crash on
    accident-prone SoCal freeways.

  2. Tractor-trailer tend to swerve or jackknife during adverse road conditions. The best thing to do when near these trucks is to allow it to move forward and stay as far as possible to avoid getting rear-ended or broadsided.

  3. The surviving family members can file a Personal Injury lawsuit to recover compensation for losses. Wal-Mart may initiate a settlement to help the families start anew.

  4. The plaintiff’s lawyer can initiate a mediation with the involved party to speed up the case. If they are not willing to cooperate, the surviving family members can pursue the Wrongful death lawsuit.
