Recently, Los Angeles’ infamous traffic was back in the national spotlight, for both amusing and tragic reasons.
CBS Los Angeles television news crews spotted the amusing part on the shoulder of the westbound Interstate 105 near Los Angeles International Airport. The freeway was so clogged, with traffic at a complete standstill, that an entrepreneuring taco truck owner set up shop on the side of the road.
Several customers stood in line, taking advantage of the unexpected culinary experience.
The reason for the taco truck’s presence alongside I-105 was quite tragic, however. According to witnesses, a Range Rover sport utility vehicle (SUV) had been driving erratically on the freeway shortly after 5 A.M. on a Friday when it lost control, crashing into the center divider.
A big rig tanker truck carrying over 4500 gallons of fuel swerved to avoid the SUV, but it jackknifed and also crashed into the divider, exploding. The drivers of both the SUV and the semi truck died in the crash.
Such horrific incidents are, of course, not confined to Los Angeles. In the Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana region, big truck accidents are major sources of serious injuries and even fatalities. If you or someone you care about has been hurt in such an incident, there may be grounds to recover financial compensation, if the wreck resulted from someone else’s negligence.
