San Dimas: Semi Crash Killed Three People
Posted on Jun 27, 2011
At around 2:45 a.m. this morning, a semi crash killed three people in San Dimas, California. The accident occurred in the southbound lanes of the 57 Freeway when a sedan and a tractor-trailer collided, the impact causing the car to rollover, pinning the three female occupants. Unfortunately, they did not survive. Authorities are investigating the cause of the truck accident, explains a local attorney.
San Dimas accounted for 76 of the 73,561 fatal and injury motor vehicle traffic accidents that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to current California Office of Traffic Safety statistics. That year, collisions involving large trucks claimed 3,380 lives and injured 74,000 people, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of the three women who were killed in the semi crash this morning.
