Redding, California experienced something new on Wednesday afternoon: a dog accelerated a truck into a house.

The dog was seated in the front seat of the truck originally. Apparently he felt the need to use the bathroom, and could not wait for his driver to stop. He began his business on the center consul but his foot slipped. The dog then fell down near the driver’s feet and he pushed down on the accelerator.

The driver attempted to halt the vehicle but he failed, and the truck smashed into a house.

According to a neighbor, the driver claimed that he had the brake pedal all the way to the floor, but could not stop.

No one in the house or the truck was injured. The same neighbor explains that the boys were out of the house at the time, which is fortunate because they may have been at risk for injuries.

The neighborhood seems to understand that it was an accident and are just all thankful that no one was hurt.

The accident occurred at Bobwhite Way and Partridge Drive around 2 p.m.

This crash seems humorous because it was caused by a dog, but accidents like this can lead to much more serious consequences. Vehicular collisions are destructive enough, but having one go through a house can damage much more than property. Thankfully in this instance, there were no fatalities or injuries.

If you or someone you know has been in a collision, whether it was caused by dog or human, contact a northern California accident lawyer today.

Dog Attack in Riverside, California

Two young toddlers, ages one and two years old, were taken to the hospital after they were attacked by an eight year old pit bull. The boys were playing in a family friend’s backyard when the friend’s dog went for them. It is unknown whether the boys were alone in the yard or if the parents were present before the assault.

The dog has been quarantined and will be moved to a humane facility.

As of now, it is a mystery as to what caused the attack on the boys. It is possible that the dog lashed out without any provocation, or it is possible that the boys were harassing the dog prior to the attack. It is easy to forget that dogs are animals that are programmed with instincts and if/when they are feeling threatened, they react as any animal would.

Pit bulls were bred to fight. Now that dog-fighting is illegal across America, the breed has been brought into homes, but their nature to protect and attack once threatened cannot be easily erased. It is vital that pit bull owners know how to train this breed and do not abuse its over protectiveness.

Pit bull terriers and rottweilers have accounted for 73% of the fatal dog attacks since 2005. This number includes adult and child deaths. In fact, dog attacks are the fifth highest reason that child go to emergency rooms due to voluntary activities (i.e. playing sports).

Being attacked by a dog is a serious issue. Not only can an attack cause disfigurement or fatalities, it also demands serious medical attention. Today, attack victims suffer over $1 billion in financial losses annually. Not only are medical bills high, but the loss in wages, permanent disabilities, possible property damage, and more create an enormous monetary setback.

Having an attorney help sort through the insurance claims and damages is vital with dog attacks. Contact one of our great injury lawyers today.

Two Injured and Four Dogs Dead in Hit and Run Accident

Two victims of a hit and run accident have been seriously injured when a car hit them on Monday, July 16 in Carmichael. The couple had sustained serious personal injury. Sadly, four dogs were with them and none of which survived the hit.

Gemily West, 23, and her boyfriend Harrison Randall, 21, had gone for a late night jog with West’s four dogs. Sometime after 10 p.m., the couple decided to head back to their car. As they were crossing with their dogs across Garfield Avenue at Engle Road, a driver in a car came at them. The two pedestrians believed that the car was going to turn left and away from them so they continued to cross the street. Instead, the vehicle continued straight at a high rate of speed, hitting the couple and killing the four dogs.

The vehicle is believed to be either a 1986 or 1987 light brown Nissan Maxima or Stanza sedan. The automobile had sped right through a stop sign without even slowing down and knocked the sign over. Then, the driver hit Randall, West, and all four Australian cattle dogs with them.

As a result, all four dogs died on the scene. Randall’s leg was severed from the impact of the hit and West suffered from a broken leg.

One witness to the incident, Corrina Aggee, told reporters that she had seen the whole incident. She said that after the car hit the couple and their dogs, she looked across the street and saw Randall’s leg. She then vomited before running over to the victim with a pillow. She said that Randall actually looked at her and told her “I’m going to be okay.”

After the hit, the two victims were immediately taken to a nearby hospital to be treated. Randall had at least three surgeries done. His girlfriend, West, is expected to start rehabilitation work in the hospital on Thursday. It will be a few more days before she is released.

Investigators believe that Randall had suffered greater injuries because he had tried to protect his girlfriend from the impact. West’s brother told officials that her boyfriend, Randall, was a hero for pushing her out of the way. If he had not pushed her, she would have taken the full impact, and she would have died.

The automobile fled the scene at a high speed. Officers believe that either the driver panicked or that the individual fled the scene because he or she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact North Sacramento CHP or the CHP Sacramento Communication Center. The automobile is believed to have moderate damage to the driver’s front side as well as a missing driver’s side rearview mirror. The left side running lights and turn signals will be damaged as well.

If you have been a pedestrian and received personal injury from a careless driver, you are entitled to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. Call a Sacramento personal injury lawyer today and don’t let the guilty party get away with this injustice.
