Lemon Grove, CA – Several Injured After Mattress Falls in Roadway

Multi-vehicle crash in San Bernardino CountyLemon Grove, CA (August 3, 2018) – Several vehicles were involved in a Thursday crash triggered by a mattress in the roadway.  The crash occurred at approximately 11:49 am in the westbound lanes of Highway 94.

Los Angeles Injury Accidents

We hope that those injured in this crash have a full and complete recovery.

It is against the law for a driver to fail to secure their vehicle.  Trucks and other vehicles which are hauling objects must have all objects securely tied down inside the trailer, truck bed or other hauling apparatus.   Failing to do so can lead to very catastrophic results, including fatal car crashes.  Each year, many people are injured due to objects which have fallen into the roadway.  In most cases, these objects were not properly secured in the vehicle.

In this case, police will search for the responsible vehicle.  If there were no eyewitnesses, it may be difficult to locate the vehicle.  The injured victims have the right to bring a negligence action against the person who failed to properly secure their vehicle.
