Posted on Jun 06, 2011
Three people sustained serious injuries when an SUV ran a red light and crashed into a semi-truck at the intersection of Miraloma Avenue and Miller Street.
The Anaheim semi-truck accident occurred on Monday, June 6, 2011 at 12:58 p.m. The driver of a Honda Ridgeline headed north on Miller Avenue ran a red light and crashed into a west bound Fresh Foods Concepts tractor-trailer. The big rig truck had had green light on Miraloma Avenue. The impact caused the truck driver to lose control of his vehicle. The 18-wheeler hit a corner, went up on the sidewalk, and careened into a restaurant parking lot where it hit 5 other vehicles. Fortunately, the vehicles in the parking lot of the Alea Cafe were empty.
The driver of the Honda sustained traumatic injuries and was taken to the hospital. The driver of the truck was also seriously injured and was taken to another hospital. A pedestrian who was standing between two of the parked vehicles sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a third hospital.
The Orange County commercial truck accident remains under investigation.
