At about 7 a.m. on Monday, December 3, the female driver of a black BMW 528i was injured in a semi crash in Corona. The collision, which also involved a silver Nissan Frontier, occurred on the westbound 91 Freeway, just east of the Orange County line near Green River Road. Emergency responders transported the woman to an area hospital. The driver of the Nissan was not hurt. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“Given their size and weight, semi trucks can exert tremendous force in an impact, which can result in serious trauma to the occupants of smaller vehicles in the event of a collision,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis.
California Office of Traffic Safety data indicate that 396 people were killed or injured in crashes in Corona in 2010, with the city ranking 49th out of 53 cities with populations of between 100,001 and 250,000 for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions. Large trucks were involved in 6 of the fatal and 293 of the injury accidents that occurred in Riverside County that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the driver of the BMW who was injured in the semi crash.
The Orange County Register originally reported this collision.
