In what is, perhaps, one of the more unusual vehicle-related stories of the year so far, a woman driving a stolen ambulance lead police on a chase through downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday April 3. Around 12. 30a.m on Tuesday, a woman jumped into an ambulance which had been left vacant while paramedics transferred a patient into the California Hospital Medical Center, and drove away. After the theft was reported, police began tailing the ambulance, marking the start of a chase which would last for around 40 miles, as the woman used the 10 Freeway to drive towards Chino Hills. She eventually handed herself over to officers around 1.15a.m. on the 71 Freeway South.
Thankfully, nobody was injured during this chase, nor were any injuries sustained as a result of the woman’s reckless, and criminal, behavior. However, not everyone is as lucky when large vehicles such as trucks – or ambulances – are driven negligently or recklessly.
Road accidents always have the potential to inflict catastrophic injuries and damage, and these risks are greatly magnified when a vehicle as large as a semi-truck is involved in the collision. If you are involved in such a collision, you are sure to be in shock as the reality and gravity of the situation begins to dawn on you. However, to ensure your Los Angeles truck accident attorney can help you secure the maximum amount of compensation and damages, there are some things you absolutely must do.
