Long Beach, CA (May 30, 2022) – At least one person lost their life in a fiery traffic accident involving multiple vehicles in Long Beach. According to reports, the wreck happened in the early morning hours of May 26.
At approximately 3:02 a.m., responders were called to the North Long Beach Boulevard off-ramp of the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway. They found three vehicles, including a semi-truck, in the middle lanes of the freeway.
According to information from the California Highway Patrol, the other involved vehicles were identified as a white sedan and a Toyota Tundra. One of the cars was on fire after colliding with the big rig, reports said.
One person was trapped inside the burning vehicle and died at the scene. All lanes of the freeway were closed for several hours while crews worked in the area.
Authorities in Long Beach continue to investigate the details of the crash.
Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim.
California Truck Accidents
Statistics show that around 900 people lose their lives in semi-truck accidents throughout the state of California each year. Hundreds of thousands more are left injured. When semi-trucks are involved in collisions, they often leave victims with far more severe injuries. In fact, many victims require extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Although we would like to see everyone recover from their accidents without any issues, thousands of people are forced to live with pain and suffering indefinitely. Though there are numerous treatment options available for victims, they come at an extraordinary cost.
Victims and their families are often left to pay thousands of dollars on stacking medical bills and deal with an array of financial burdens after being affected by an accident. Although it can seem like no amount of compensation can ever make us feel whole again after being harmed in an accident, having financial resources available to cover the economic and non-economic damages we face moving forward can help to alleviate some of the stress associated with victims and their families are forced to endure. Working with a truck accident attorney in Long Beach will ensure you are able to maximize your recovery and move forward.
