Car accidents: Woman dead after crash with truck and bus

California highways are shared daily by every type of vehicle imaginable. For the majority of the time, thousands of cars, motorcycles, buses and trucks of every size arrive safely at their destinations. However, car accidents still occur and may result in damage to the vehicle and injury or even death to the occupants. A recent incident claimed the life of a Canyon Country woman and injured another person.

The Santa Clarita Sheriff's station reported that an accident occurred when a truck pulling a trailer rear-ended a car near a highway intersection. The impact of the collision caused the car to hit a Santa Clarita Transit bus.  According to an investigator with the coroner's office, the driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The driver was identified as a 67-year-old woman from Canyon Country. A passenger on the bus was treated for an arm injury suffered during the accident. While details of the incident have not been provided, the ongoing investigation will determine if negligence was a contributing factor to the crash.

Losing a loved one is a horrific experience, no matter what the circumstances. However, the tragedy is compounded when car accidents could have possibly been avoided.  Should negligence be determined as a cause of a fatal accident, survivors may choose to pursue wrongful death litigation to pursue recovery of monetary damages for their loss. A California personal injury attorney can assist families throughout the legal process and work toward obtaining the most favorable outcome in the case. While a monetary award cannot bring a loved one back, it may help with unforeseen expenses and compensate for pain, suffering and lost future income.
