San Andreas, CA – Truck Accident Leads to Serious Injuries

San Andreas, CA (September 13, 2018) – Two people were badly injured following a truck accident that took place in San Andreas on September 10. The accident took place on Highway 29.

According to primary reports, a 29-year-old named Jay Stufflet was driving a 2005 Ford Focus on Beverlynn Lane and pulled out onto the highway. This is when a 2013 Kenworth logging truck was passing in the northbound lane, crashing directly into the small vehicle.

The operator of the truck was identified as 62-year-old Clifford Stormes, who claimed that he saw the vehicle but couldn’t stop his truck in time. Responding paramedics came to the scene and rendered aid to Stufflet and his passenger, identified as 33-year-old Teri Neikirk. Both were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but their conditions are not known at this time.

Investigators say that they believe right of way laws will determine fault in the accident.

San Andreas Truck Accident 

We wish to first extend our condolences to the two parties who have received serious injuries in this accident and hope that they experience a fast and easy recovery.

Truck accidents involve many complicated theories, especially when it comes to liability. Those who drive large trucks, especially commercial vehicles, might find that it is difficult to determine who is responsible for an accident, as both the driver and the trucking company might share liability depending on the terms of the accident. Was the driver working on their own time or the time of the company when the accident occurred? To make these determinations, you will typically need an experienced attorney on your side.

Those who drive large trucks on our roadways tend to have to follow many guidelines when it comes to their jobs, such as meeting the demands of the job while obeying the rules of the road and upholding road safety. If they have acted in a negligent manner at the time of your accident, such as through speeding, distracted driving, or some other means, you have many rights.

At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we want to stand by your side so we can help you get the most out of your case. You have many rights and we will help protect you at this time. Call us for more information today at 310-954-7248 for more information.
