U-Haul Truck Driver Crashes Into Pedestrians and Motorcyclist

The pedestrian and motorcycle accident lawyers at KP LAW are experts in personal injury and pursuing compensation on behalf of those injured or killed by trucks or other motor vehicle accidents.

According to LA Times, On November 1, 2015 a U-Haul truck drove onto a sidewalk full of pedestrians celebrating Halloween in downtown LA. The driver hit two vehicles and injured ten people, police said.

The driver has been identified by witnesses and police as 40-year-old Michael Maurice Wilson. Witnesses claim they saw the driver walk away from the vehicle, apparently unharmed, toward Main Street. Additionally, Wilson admitted that he was under the influence of marijuana, and police confirm that an additional substance was found in his pocket. A blood sample was taken to determine the extent of Wilson's intoxication.

Wilson was arrested for driving under the influence and told the police that he did not remember much about the incident. The U-Haul truck was empty and did not appear to be stolen.

The ten individuals who were injured in the accident include five pedestrians, a motorcyclist, and four passengers of a struck vehicle. Three individuals remain in the hospital for treatment, although it appears that no life-threatening injuries were sustained.
