Multiple people were hurt when an ambulance and trash truck were involved in an accident in Pasadena, Texas. It was a total of four people that sustained injuries. The unfortunate accident occurred on December 4, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is completed.
An ambulance was traveling on the feeder road of Beltway 8 with its emergency lights and noise turned on. There was a medical patient that was inside the emergency response vehicle as well. Suddenly, a dump truck that was traveling on the feeder road of Beltway 8 flipped on its side on top of the ambulance near Vista Road. Four people were hurt and taken to receive to receive medical treatment for their injuries. The condition of those injured is not currently being reported. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to those injured. We hope that they make a speedy recovery. Our hearts also go out to the family and friends of those injured during this tough time.
It is truly sad to hear about this car accident. The highways and roadways are a place where unpredictable moments occur and that is why safety is important.
Why did the dump truck fall on top of the ambulance? Was anyone distracted or under the influence? Were there any precautions that could have been taken to prevent this accident?
Although the police are doing their own investigating, they cannot always be fully relied upon. There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding personal injury lawsuits.
