Hollister Truck Accident Kills One, Seriously Injures Two

Hollister Truck Accident Kills One, Seriously Injures Two

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 25-Jun-2009

JUNE 18, 2009 - A truck accident in Hollister, California caused by a driver making an illegal U-turn has killed one person and left two people hospitalized with critical injuries. According to news reports, the tractor-trailer was traveling on highway 152 when the driver apparently made an illegal U-turn. The female driver of the 2006 Dodge Charger was unable to stop in time to avoid the large truck. The car crashed through the bottom of the trailer, shaving off the entire top portion of the vehicle.

One 18-year-old occupant, a Turlock Resident died at the scene of the crash. The other two occupants, Jasbir Singh, 18, a resident of Hughson and 19-year-old Gurvinder Chamal of Ceres was also driving the car, had to be airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in San Jose with critical injuries.

The California Highway Patrol has already begun an investigation, and investigators are looking into why the truck driver, David Jones, 57-year-old of Hayward, suddenly tried to make a U-turn into the eastbound lanes. So far the tractor-trailer driver has not been arrested or cited. There is no information yet on the speed of the car at the time of the truck accident. We will have to wait for investigations to be completed before we can determine what happened here.
