Pair of California Truck Accidents Leave 40 Injured in San Francisco
August 18th, 2014| California truck accident can be. The first crash happened at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Friday, August 1, along Geary Boulevard in the Japantown neighborhood. Reports indicate a Muni Metro bus collided with a dump truck, leaving 20 people injured. A total of 12 victims required medical treatment. CBS San Francisco News states that just moments later, a commercial tractor trailer attempted to make an illegal left turn at the corner of Third and Innes, cutting off a Muni Metro light-rail car. The driver of the rail vehicle didn’t have time to stop and struck the truck, leaving another 20 commuters injured. Both incidents raise the question of who is liable for the costs the injured victims face. The law states the insurer for the responsible driver will be liable for covering those expenses.
