Shortly before 5:00 a.m. this morning, two people were injured in a semi crash on the 57 Freeway near Diamond Bar Boulevard. The collision, involving two big rigs, left diesel fuel in the southbound lanes, which Caltrans crews were still cleaning up at 8 a.m. Both drivers were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Authorities are investigating the incident, explains a California truck accident lawyer.
California accounted for 236 of the 3,380 fatalities and 4,874 of the 74,000 injuries suffered in large truck accidents that occurred throughout the country in 2009, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and California Highway Patrol statistics. That year, large trucks accounted for 7 percent of the vehicles in fatal crashes, 2 percent of the vehicles involved in injury crashes, and 3 percent of the vehicles involved in property-damage-only crashes.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the two drivers injured in the semi crash on the 57 Freeway a full recovery.
The Orange County Register originally reported this truck crash.
