Driver Pronounced Dead After Collision With Speeding Fire Truck

By Robert Kahn on August 3, 2015 - Comments off

Auto Product Liability AttorneyIt was supposed to be a day filled with laughter and love. Instead, a couple on the way to a wedding rehearsal was involved in a devastating collision with a L.A. County Fire Department truck. As reported by the LAist and NBC LA, the accident occurred around 5pm along Mulholland Highway. The couple was driving a Ford Focus attempting to make a left hand turn onto Saddle Rock Ranch, when they were sideswiped by the emergency vehicle. The truck was headed toward a brush fire in Sherman Oaks when it broadsided the couple. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, his wife was airlifted to a nearby medical facility.

While the emergency vehicle had its sirens and lights on, witnesses believe the truck was moving too fast and didn’t provide enough reaction time to avoid a collision. A neighbor asked NBC LA, “How fast do you need to go? How fast is it to being safe to where things are going to turn bad on the way?” The L.A. County Fire Department released a statement saying they were “deeply saddened” by the man’s death, but could not comment on the incident due to “ongoing investigations.”

Collisions with private emergency medical crews and government vehicles happen very often. However, if you or a loved one has been harmed by one of these negligent drivers, you may be able to pursue legal action. Contact the attorneys at Kahn Roven, LLP for a free case consultation today.
