Shortly before 6 a.m. on Friday, August 24, a collision between a Metrolink train and a semi truck injured four people in Camarillo. The crash occurred near Noel Street, two miles west of the Camarillo station, the impact causing two occupants of the semi and two of the train to suffer trauma. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“After an accident resulting in injuries, the negligent party may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries,” explained California truck accident attorney James Ballidis, “including for medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Camarillo accounted for 3 of the 50 fatalities and 432 of the 4,259 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in Ventura County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 2 of the fatal and 73 of the injury collisions that occurred in the state that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the four people who were injured in the collision between the semi truck and the Metrolink train this morning.
