Shortly after 2 a.m. on Thursday, January 30, 2014, a hit-and-run semi crash killed 52-year-old Guadencio Perez, of Ontario, in Rancho Cucamonga, reported the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. While traveling northbound on Etiwanda Avenue, a semi truck ran a red light at San Bernardino Avenue, colliding with two vehicles that were heading west on San Bernardino. Perez, the driver of one of the cars, was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver fled on foot, leaving his semi at Napa Street. The California Highway Patrol is searching for the trucker.
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s accident data for 2011 indicate that motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of or caused injury to 341 people in Rancho Cucamonga. Hit-and-run was a factor in 14 of the crashes. Across the state, large trucks were involved in 245 fatal and 5,155 injury accidents that year, with Los Angeles (47 deaths, 1,607 injuries), San Bernardino (29 deaths, 438 injuries), and Riverside (23 deaths, 292 injuries) accounting for the greatest incidences of collisions.
Collisions with semi trucks often result in serious or fatal trauma to the occupants of passenger vehicles.
