Morning sun caused an accident, Recology employee seriously hurt

Careful, the morning and
late afternoon sun can be blinding
San Mateo County Times/Erin Ivie, 11/13/13.  "Pacifica:  Recology employee pinned against recycling truck by oncoming car."

"The Recology employee double parked with lights flashing about 7:50 a.m. and was emptying a can into his truck when he was hit by a car headed south in the 200 block of Catalina Avenue, Steidle said. The 1997 Infinity smashed the man against the refuse truck, pinning his legs and trapping him between the two vehicles. 

The driver, a 25-year-old San Francisco woman who said she was blinded by the morning sun, was uninjured in the crash, Steidle said. .... The Recology employee remains hospitalized with serious injuries, but is expected to recover, Steidle said."   Read more.
