fiery san diego wrong way crashSAN DIEGO, California (July 10, 2017) — A deadly crash between a wrong-way driver and a tow truck was reported early Saturday morning on the southbound Interstate 5 Freeway.

The violent crash took place just after midnight when a driver traveling southbound in the northbound lanes crashed into the truck about 100 yards from the Main Street exit.  One of the vehicles was completely demolished in the collision.

The California Highway Patrol responded with paramedics to the crash where both vehicles had burst into flames upon impact.

The tow truck driver survived with major burns and was taken by ambulance to a hospital. The wrong-way driver died instantly in the collision.

An investigation into the tragedy is underway to determine if drugs and or alcohol were factors.

Liability for Accidents

After police complete their investigation into an accident and determine fault, it’s up to anyone who is hurt to take steps to obtain financial compensation for their losses. Whether it’s medical bills or lost time off work, the aftermath of a traffic accident can be costly and if it’s not your fault the other side should pay? Well yes, technically, but will they pay the full amount that you are owed? That depends on whether you attempt to negotiate with the insurance company yourself or you hire an experienced attorney to go to bat for you. Johnson Attorneys Group has skilled negotiators who will make sure you get fully compensated for all of your losses. Call us for a free consultation at 800-235-6801.
