    Truck Accident Sends One to Hospital
    Bakersfield, California - January 4, 2014

    An accident involving a pickup truck and a tractor trailer left one person with serious injuries Saturday morning. The driver of the pickup truck was transported to Kern Medical Center after colliding with the tractor trailer. The tractor trailer driver complained of pain in the aftermath of the collision but ultimately refused medical treatment.

    The accident happened at around 10:00 a.m. at the intersection of 7th Standard and Quinn roads. According to the Bakersfield Californian, the tractor trailer driver was making a left turn onto 7th Standard when the pickup truck, heading east on 7th Standard, collided with the tractor trailer. The pickup truck apparently tried to stop for the red light but could not avoid a collision in the intersection. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

    I'm not sure if it was an on road accident or in the yard. the letter was mostly about yard safety. and it said victim(s) like there were multiple injuries.

    I was hoping a SAC or Bay area driver knows something.

    Maybe this? Only 1 victim though...

    By Bay City News Service

    A man was killed this morning when he was crushed by a tractor-trailer backing into a loading dock at a Hayward warehouse, police and state occupational health officials said.

    The man, identified by the Alameda County coroner's bureau as Chengbin Xiao, 56, of Union City, was a worker at Keeco LLC., which has a distribution center at 30736 Wiegman Road, Hayward police said.

    The trailer was backing up into a dock at the warehouse when the victim attempted to gain the driver's attention to tell him that he was backing into the wrong trailer bay, police said.
