Truck Driver Gurbir Singh, 48, Killed in I-5 Crash Near Stanislaus-Merced County Line

Manteca, CA – According to the Modesto Bee, on the night of Friday, March 22, 2024, the solo-vehicle crash of a big rig ended the life of 48-year-old Manteca truck driver Gurbir Singh.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that the crash occurred around 8:30 PM north of Highway 140 on Interstate 5, near the Stanislaus-Merced county line.

Investigators have not yet determined why Singh, who had been driving a Freightliner tractor, suddenly veered right and left the roadway, crashing into a dirt embankment. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
