Dieu Vu, 72, was an active adult, business owner and Vietnam War survivor but he didn’t have a chance while riding his tricycle across the busy intersection of Beach Blvd and Edinger Ave recently. Each morning he rode his adult tricycle to work out at the Bally’s Total Fitness on Beach blvd. This morning he went out as usual but while crossing this busy intersection, a raised truck which was turning right on a green light did not see him and he was instantly killed.
Truck drivers have limited vision in their mirrors and also to their right along curb lines. This danger is frequently the cause of truck accidents.
The Orange County coroner’s office has not confirmed the injuries that caused his death but the police have released the driver, Michael Sindar of Westminster. Sindar claims not to have seen Vu while making the turn onto Beach Blvd. Was his truck too high? Was there something obstructing his view? Was this a dangerous intersection?
Actually, this is a known dangerous intersection with blind spots but only a n experienced Orange County personal injury attorney will be able to examine all of the evidence and do a comprehensive search for the facts. If you have experienced a similar accident, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced Orange County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
