Legal News Out Of San Ramon, California
The San Ramon Patch posted a story by Patrick Creaven, February 14, 2013, under the headline, “Man Critically Injured by Falling Traffic Light.”
This is a really good example of a freak accident, of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
More On The Tragic Story
It seems man was driving a tractor-trailer about 1:35 p.m. last Monday evening at the Crow Canyon Road and Camino Ramon intersection when he knocked down a traffic light pole. This caused the traffic light to hit a 23-year-old man’s head.
According to the Patch story, traffic officer Bill Doherty was quoted as saying the man who was hit by the light is in critical condition at John Muir Medical Center. All in all, someone may need a Auto Repair San Ramon for their damaged vehicle and parts after the said collision with the traffic light, even if it is a tractor trailer. It would probably not be too much automotive tech to fix the vehicle in question for a car service or body shop firm, but hey no job too small I suppose.
Further Details On The Accident
Patrick Creaven reported in the piece that the driver of the tractor-trailer was turning too sharply right from Crow Canyon onto Camino Ramon when it hit the traffic light pole. The poor pedestrian “was waiting to cross the street on his way back to work when the traffic light came crashing down and hit him in the head,” wrote Creaven. Wow, you talk about your freak accidents. I bet that has never happened in the golden state of CA roads or highways, much less San Ramon or the bay area before.
