East San Jose Truck Accident Leaves Two Juveniles with Serious Injuries

A freighting trucking accident in East San Jose left two juveniles with serious injuries. The accident occurred on January 15, 2012 at approximately 5:35 p.m. on Alum Rock Avenue near the intersection of Eastgate Avenue.

According to published reports, the cyclists were crossing Alum Rock Avenue when they were struck by a pickup truck that was traveling westbound on Alum Rock Avenue. It is unclear what caused this frightening accident. Driver negligence is a common cause of trucking accidents. There are many different forms of driver negligence including:
Due to the massive size and weight of trucks, any negligence on the part of a truck driver is magnified and places the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists at risk. The driver of the truck can be held liable for this accident if driver negligence is found to have been a contributing factor.
Another possibility is that a dangerous intersection contributed to this accident. There are many different factors which can make an intersection dangerous. For example, an intersection could lack signs that are required for adequate safety.
