In the early morning of December 8, 2009, a motorist traveling was struck and killed by another vehicle after exiting his vehicle. The motorist, a 58 year-old San Francisco resident, was traveling on northbound on Interstate 280 when his 1996 Toyota Tacoma struck a bean bag chair in the fast lane. Apparently, the bean bag chair is another example of trucks and truck drivers failing to properly secure items being hauled or moved causing injuries and the wrongful death of a motorist.
In this instance, the bean bag chair disabled the San Francisco residents truck. He apparently exited the vehicle to remove the bean bag chair when he was struck and killed by another motorist. Any witnesses related to this accident are encouraged to contact the San Francisco Police Department or the California Highway Patrol.
As in many of these type of situations, the driver transporting the bean bag could be responsible for the wrongful death of the San Francisco resident.
