Three California men have died as the result of a California Truck Accident that occurred last week. According to The Sacramento Bee, the crash happened at 10:25 a.m. Friday on I-80, just before the Richards Boulevard exit.

Reports from Officer Bryan Konvalin with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) indicate that the men were in a rented box truck heading east along the Interstate in the center lane of traffic when the driver attempted to move into the left lane. As the box truck began to merge into the left lane, the truck’s driver failed to notice a Mitsubishi Montero SUV that was already in the left lane, and also in the trucks blind spot, and the two collided. The truck then veered back across the highway to the right, where it came to rest after hitting a tree.

All three occupants of the box truck died at the scene, while the driver and a passenger of the Montero were uninjured in the accident.

Investigators say they are looking into several factors that may have contributed to the accident, such as excessive speed and the proper use of seat belts.

The California Personal Injury Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers understand how devastating the sudden loss of a loved one can be and would like to send their deepest sympathies to the families of the young men who died as a result of the accident.
