At about 7:20 a.m. on Tuesday, August 7th, two people were injured in a semi crash in Baldwin Park. The crash between the semi and the tanker truck occurred on the eastbound 10 Freeway near the 605 Freeway, the impact causing diesel fuel to spill across lanes and the closure of the freeway. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“Given their size and weight, semis can cause serious damage in a collision,” explained California truck accident attorney James Ballidis, “including severe trauma for those involved.”
Baldwin Park accounted for 4 of the 390 fatalities and 332 of the 64,178 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, large trucks were involved in 46 of the fatal and 1,464 of the injury collisions that occurred in the county.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured in the semi crash in Baldwin Park.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this collision.
