The client, who was a disabled adult under the care of the responsible party, was being transported in a company van.
Client was on his way to Best Buy with his son. They were travelling on Spruce Ave. and they had almost reached the store when a car pulled out from the store parking lot to his left. The car jetted across traffic and collided with the side panel of Client’s car, causing damage to the vehicle that rendered it not drivable from the scene.
Defendant was operating the combination of farm implements within the roadway without sufficient lighting to warn approaching traffic of the slow moving vehicle, in violation of California Vehicle Code Section 24600(a). In addition, Defendant’s trailer was not equipped with the Orange triangle for slow moving vehicles as required by law. Client crashed into the tractor because of the insufficient lighting.
The dog attacked the young female and bit her upper lip. The bite caused a 1.5 x 1.5 cm tissue avulsion to the upper lip.
