In the blink of an eye, your whole world can change. A lot of times you never see it coming and unfortunately, there are a few changes which take lives.
Such is the sad case of a 43-year-old motorist who drove off of the West-bound side of I-8 and experienced a rollover accident when his truck flipped over. He was pronounced dead almost immediately after authorities arrived on the scene.
Our auto accident attorneys want to remind people about how dangerous rollover accidents are, not just to the driver of the vehicle, but other commuters on the road. If you are lucky enough to survive, you might find yourself with physical disabilities and emotional trauma from the events of the accident.
The driver, a man from El Cajon, lost control of his white 1990 Toyota pickup after just crossing paths with the 805 Freeway. It slammed into a 2004 Dodge Ram to the right of the truck, which, inturn, veered into a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee and caused it to crash.
While those two cars managed to make it over to the side of the rode, the Toyota flew off the embankment next to I-8, knocked down a chainlink fence, then came the rollover until it finally stopped in the driveway of the Volunteers of America building on Camino del Rio North.
No reports have indicated if this was a drunk-driving incident or if passengers from the Dodge Ram and Jeep Grand Cherokee required any medical treatment. Police have said that the truck driver was buckled into his safety belt, but partially ejected from his chair once the car accident occurred.
Our firm’s auto accident attorneys cannot express enough the importance of driving safely: do not speed, do not text or talk on the phone, and always wear your seatbelt. Together, we can make sure that wrongful deaths do not happen frequently on our roads.
