Truck Drifts near Day Care Center after Collision

A green garbage truck crashed onto the metal drive-through fixture just outside a day care center after it collided with an installation van of the Dish Network in Folsom Boulevard recently. The vehicle collision killed the driver of the van, who was identified as a technician of the network.

No one else was reportedly killed in the crash which happened after the westbound van made a turn in front of the eastbound truck. The motorists had to be extricated from their vehicles for some time.

The driver of the truck was brought to a hospital where he was said to be in critical condition. The driver of the van died at the scene.

This head-on collision could have gone a lot worse as reports suggests that the vehicles nearly missed the playground of the First Steps Child Care Center.

Motorists should be more careful when driving near schools, residential areas, and other places where there are a lot of pedestrians whom they can injure.
