LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. (May 24, 2018) — Two big rig trucks and a black sedan collided today on the eastbound US 101 Freeway at the Kanan Road off ramp, a California Highway Patrol report said.
The collision took place about 3:49 a.m. this morning and prompted a Sig Alert. Paramedics responded, but the extent of injuries was not disclosed in the CHP report. The car was blocking the No. 3 lane after the crash. One of the semi-tractor trailer trucks overturned on the westbound side at Kanan and was facing the wrong way. The vehicle suffered moderate front-end damage and right rear rim damage. The other truck was a tanker truck hauling roughly 30,000 pounds.
The collision left debris scattered across all traffic lanes and required a sweeper truck to clean it up. Some vehicles struck the debris and caused damage.
Los Angeles County Accident Investigation
Police are investigating what caused this crash and ultimately, who is responsible. It’s unknown at this time whether or not any of the drivers violated any traffic laws or was driving recklessly. Sometimes, both parties involved may share responsibility for the collision. Investigators are going over the evidence and will piece together what happened and assign liability.
If a negligent driver or another entity is at fault for a collision resulting in injuries to you or a loved one, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim. While this is always a personal decision, for many the financial losses associated with a traffic accident are significant. The losses include time lost off work, medical and funeral expenses, loss of consortium and pain and suffering.
