Cabral v. Ralphs Grocery, S178799

In a wrongful death action alleging negligence, judgment against plaintiff is vacated because defendant owes a duty to avoid a collision between a negligent driver and the company's stopped truck, where a driver, working for defendant, stopped his tractor-trailer rig alongside an interstate highway in order to have a snack and the husband of plaintiff veered suddenly off the freeway colliding with the rear of the stopped trailer and resulting in his own death.
