Car Crashes and Rolls Over After Collision with Tractor-Trailer in Long Beach
June 14, 2018. The California Highway Patrol reported a black Kia Sorrento that had overturned after it crashed into a semi-tractor trailer Wednesday night. According to reports, the crash happened at approximately 8:27 p.m. last night on the Interstate 710 Freeway near the 91 Freeway. The impact of the accident left the black SUV on its roof. The overturned vehicle blocked all traffic in the number 3 lane I-710.
Although the California Highway Patrol report does state exactly what caused the crash to occur, paramedics were verified to have been at the scene shortly after the accident. The person who called 911 to report the crash stated that paramedics, as well as several other people, were standing in the lanes before the police arrived. There is currently no word as to the extent of injuries nor how many people were hurt. While the specifics are lacking, injuries are believed to be moderate to severe.
The accident is currently under investigation to determine who was at fault. We extend our warmest wishes of health and wellness to any and all the victims of this accident.
Truck Accident Attorney
Police are investigating numerous factors including, speed or whether or not drugs and/or alcohol or distracted driving were involved. In any accident involving large commercial trucks, the damage is typically detrimental. The size and power of these large trucks can cause tremendous injuries. Additionally, and so long as the truck driver was operating the vehicle within their normal working hours, the trucking company may be held liable for compensation depending on the results of the investigation.
If the truck driver is determined to be liable for the crash, then the company will likely be facing personal injury lawsuits. If the victims wish to be compensated for their losses, the company will most likely be accountable for all hospital bills, future medical bills, lost wages, and even the general pain and suffering of each victim. While the financial toll that these accidents take on the victims can be enormous, it is solely up to the victims to take legal action.

We vehemently support the attentiveness of all drivers on the road, although these accidents, unfortunately, still occur.
