Two Injured in Truck Accident on Kimberlina Rd in Wasco, CA

Wasco, CA -- May 20, 2022, at least two people were injured when an SUV and a semi-truck collided on Kimberlina Road in Wasco.

Authorities say the incident happened just before 6:00 a.m. on Kimberlina between Root and Poplar avenues. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a Ford Explorer and a semi-truck collided in the area, results in injuries to both drivers. The big rig also overturned on its side, spilling a portion of its cargo of red-dyed diesel fuel onto the roadway.

The Ford driver was taken to an area hospital for treatment of major injuries, while the semi-truck driver received minor injuries.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Truck Accident on Kimberlina Road in Wasco

Police don't seem to have too good a handle on how or why this accident occurred yet. Some may think an attorney would jump at a chance to blame a truck driver, but that isn't and never has been the point of this blog or the law itself. I only advocate for open minds and careful investigations to be sure the whole truth is found. Sometimes investigators ultimately learn that an injured victim made a mistake at the wheel like glancing at a phone or traveling too fast, but other times it's learned the wreck was really out of their hands due to bad road conditions or mechanical problems in their vehicles. Crashes caused by any of those factors might look pretty similar, but they'd be treated very differently by the law.

So no, I'm not eager to sue anyone here. I'm only asking that investigators do what they're supposed to do: Look carefully into what happened, including the subtler details that too often go unnoticed during "by the book" action from law enforcement. The people hurt in the crash deserve no less than the whole truth of how it happened, and depending on what that truth turns out to be potentially some help holding the right parties accountable. If they won't get that kind of care from police, then an independent investigation on their behalf might be better.
