a Los Angles SUV rollover accident attorneys have noted a recent rollover accident involving a dump truck and SUV. Two women were injured in the SUV rollover case the morning of May 19, 2009 after the sport utility vehicle was struck by an out-of-control dump truck, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports. The San Dimas rollover accident occurred when the dump truck traveling on the transition road between the south 57 Freeway and the east 10 Freeway connector lost control for some reason. The dump truck, which had an additional piece attached swerved to the right, hit a sign and seemed about to jackknife, California Highway Patrol officials said.

But instead, the dump truck overturned and struck a 2004 gray Ford Explorer. The car accident caused the Explorer to roll over several times. Two women were trapped inside the SUV. Both were airlifted to an area hospital with personal injuries. The driver of the dump truck, Daniel Couch, suffered minor injuries.

I’m relieved that no one suffered any catastrophic injuries in this SUV rollover accident. I wish all the injured victims the very best for a quick and complete recovery.

Police say Thacker lost control of her 1994 Chevy minivan north on the freeway at 60 to 65 mph. Thacker apparently lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons and suddenly veered to the right.

Not only do they have to bury two family members during the holidays, but must deal with other injured victims who are recovering from this awful crash.
