Fog accident in Bakersfield kills truck driver

February 18, 2010--According to the Bakersfield Californian newspaper, last Thursday's wrongful death accident in Bakersfield involved a carrot truck driven by Jose Mascareno, age 43 of Bakersfield.  It was struck by a pick-up and both vehicles burst into flames.  Fog was a contributing factor.  The big rig accident scene was at Interstate 5 and Taft Highway.Further investigation is required to determine if the big rig driver shares liability for the death.  Each vehicle's event data recorders can be downloaded to determine speeds, etc.  This needs to be done before the vehicles are repaired or junked.  We recently handled a similar accident where a milk tanker turned in front of a truck injuring every member of a family from Selma.  We were able to recover several hundred thousand dollars for our clients even though the police report blamed them for the accident.  They truly were not the sole cause of their accident.  Please call us on Monday  559-713-0159--our offices are located about an hour from the scene of this accident and we can come to you for a free consultation.  Attorney John Rozier./
