Tow Truck Destroys Yoshinoya Restaurant after LA Crash

Truck drivers often get tired after hours of driving to and fro the Los Angeles city. This causes fatigue which sometimes reduces the driver's ability to focus on the road and prevent colliding with road objects. Worse, they hit pedestrians and nearby shops.

Just like the accident case of a tow truck which crashed into a Yoshinoya restaurant in West Beverly Boulevard on Thursday.

According to reports, the tow truck carrying a pick up plowed into the fast food restaurant in Wilshire Center. A crew member sustained critical injuries and six others suffered minor injuries.

Paramedics arrived and rushed the four victims to a local hospital. Police officers said that the restaurant's front, tables, and some support beams were damaged. Authorities requested the tenants on the second floor to leave the building until repair was completed.

Driver inattention due to fatigue is considered a negligent act in California. When drivers are dizzy or drowsy they have to pull over and rest for a while to regain strength. They can also call police officers to seek help and prevent collision.

On worse cases, Driving under the Influence (DUI) or speeding aggravate driving condition and result to catastrophic crashes. Both driving violations carry stringent penalties under California law.

It is not yet clear what caused the truck collision, but if the driver pleaded guilty to any of the above traffic law violation examples; he will have to prepare a huge sum for damages payment.
