Cargo container on truck falls off, kills pedestrian

In a tragic and bizarre accident on the border of Long Beach and Carson, the shipping container on a flatbed truck fell off and crushed a person who was believed to be on a bicycle recently. The accident happened near an overpass, an it sounds like the container may have struck that overpass and eventually toppled over.

After an animal attack, who is responsible for damages?

Imagine walking down the street one day, minding your own business. All of a sudden, a dog turns the corner and stares at you. You stare back. The next thing you know, this dog charges towards you and tackles you to the ground, biting your arms, legs and torso. You suffer some injuries, and soon after the dog took you to the ground, the animal's owner runs out and tries to save you.
