Semi-Truck Crash Injures Five When Tractor-Trailer Crashes into Rest Stop Home

Five people were hurt last Wednesday when a tractor-trailer crashed into the caretaker’s home at a rest stop. The truck driver was killed in the truck collision, which occurred at around noon.

It is not clear at this time why the big rig drove off I-10, through a backyard wall, and into the caretaker home at the Burnt Wells Rest Stop. The five people who got hurt were in the backyard when the large truck came through. They are: 12-year-old Nicholas Gonzales, 42-year-old Sharon Gonzales, 53-year-old Carlos Gonzales, 36-year-old Jamie Beltran, and 70-year-old Adolfo Sedillo, who sustained serious injuries during the truck collision.

18-wheeler trucker Edward A French was pronounced dead at the tractor-trailer accident site.

Truck crashes can cause serious injuries for victims. Possible truck accident lawsuit defendants can include: the trucker, the trucking company, the truck owner, the trailer owner, the entity that leased the truck, the truck manufacturer, a tire maker, the brake manufacturer, the truck shipper, the truck loader, another motorist, the entity responsible for maintaining the road where the truck crash accident happened, or other liable parties.

An experienced Chicago truck crash attorney can help you recover your truck collision injury or wrongful death compensation. Do not attempt to negotiate a settlement with the liable party unless you’ve consulted with an experienced Chicago injury law firm that has experience in representing clients with truck crash cases.
