Cabazon, CA – Tow Truck Driver Killed After Being Struck by Big Rig

Two-vehicle crash in Orange County

Cabazon, CA (August 7, 2018) – A tow truck driver is dead following a collision with a big rig truck on Tuesday morning.  The crash occurred around 9:00 am Thursday in the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 Freeway.  A Stagecoach two truck was parked on the right shoulder.  Apparently, the driver was standing outside of the truck when the collision happened.

The semi truck driver remained on scene and cooperated with the police investigation.  Both firefighters and paramedics arrived on scene but, sadly, the two truck driver died from his injuries.  The driver was employed by Stagecoach tow truck company.

California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.  There is no word at this time on the cause.

Car Accidents in Southern California

We are saddened to hear of the tow truck driver’s death in this accident.  Tow truck drivers have a dangerous job and place themselves in harm’s way each day when they report to work.  Unfortunately, one risk is that they could be involved in a serious crash such as this one.

In this case, we will have to wait for the police report before negligence can be determined.  If the big rig driver caused the crash, then the tow truck driver’s family will have a right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the trucker.  A suit could also be potentially maintained against the trucker’s employer.  In general, companies are responsible for the negligent acts of their employees while the employee is on duty.
