FedEx trucking accident caused deadly collision with tour bus near Sacramento

After a long CHP truck accident investigation it has been determined that the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer veered off the highway and through the center divider which led to the head on collision with a tour bus full of high school students. Unfortunately the CHP reported that they could not figure out why the FedEx driver, Timothy Paul Evans, sent his tractor-trailer across the center divider and into the path of the tour bus. Ten people died in this trucking accident near Sacramento including Evans and high school students.

CHP spokesperson stated that “The truck went across in a shallow angle and didn’t deviate from that path. There were no evasive maneuvers, no brakes, no turning movements, to veer from the path.” Fedex representatives could not comment at this time due to another investigation currently taking place.

“Our heartfelt sympathy remains with everyone affected by this accident. FedEx Freight cooperated fully with federal and state agencies during their respective investigations, and will carefully review the CHP truck accident report,” FedEx said in a written statement.

One of the bus accident victim attorney’s stated the the bus driver, Talalelei Lealao-Taiao, of Sacramento, really loved her job. They also went on stating that there was no way to avoid the accident. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The CHP report showed that Talalelei had attempted to avoid a collision with the tractor-trailer but the bus accident happened too fast.

The FedEx tractor-trailer was returning to Sacramento with 2 trailers when the accident happened. Truck accident investigators in Sacramento may never figure out exactly what caused the FedEx driver to steer his tractor-trailer into the path of the on-coming bus because most of the critical evidence was lost in the fire that resulted from the bus accident.

As a result of the truck accident near Sacramento there has been over 35 lawsuits filed against FedEx and Silverado Stages tour bus company. A Sacramento truck accident attorney expects all crash claims to be heard in a single court case soon.

The Sacramento truck and bus accident attorneys at the Tiemann Law Firm are monitoring the crash investigation and will report any new information as it breaks.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
