On February 16, 2018, a tragic freeway accident occurred on the 10 freeway in Rialto, California. The California wrongful death accident resulted in five deaths and other injuries. According to the Daily News, the Rialto truck accident occurred when Michael Coley, from Riverside, California, in a cement pumper truck that he was driving for Mack Industries, crashed through the center divider of the freeway, striking numerous cars.
Sadly, five people were killed in this 10 freeway truck accident and they have finally been identified as Linda Crowell-Thomsen, from Menifee, Miguel Martinez-Medina, from Los Angeles, Edgar Kunkler, from West Covina, Jerry D. Thomsen, from Menifee and Duddley White, from Twentynine Palms. All of the wrongful death victims were from California.
The California Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause of this accident and the investigation is expected to take longer because of the severity of what occurred. Investigators had to use fingerprints and dental records to identify victims, because of the fire that this accident caused.
The driver of the cement truck suffered non life threatening injuries in this accident and he should be available to give his account of what happened and what led to this fiery crash on the 10 freeway. Mack Industries started in Ohio and operates in multiple states.
The families of the victims of this accident should contact an experienced California wrongful death lawyer right away to help them with their case against Mack Industries. This will be a very large wrongful death case and should not be handled by a novice attorney.
