FONTANA: Big Rig, Pickup Crash on 10 Freeway at Cherry Avenue
FONTANA, California (May 29, 2014) — A passenger suffered minor injuries Thursday morning when the pickup truck they were riding in crashed with a big rig truck in the center divider of the westbound Interstate 10 Freeway at Cherry Avenue, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
The big rig truck crashed with the pickup truck and smashed through the K-rail in the center divider about 8:20 a.m. CHP officers responded to the collision and reported there was sod spilled out of the back of the big rig truck that was spread throughout all traffic lanes following the crash. Caltrans construction were called to respond to the crash to fix the K-rail. Roughly 20 gallons of fuel spilled into the Nos. 1 and 2 lanes.
Paramedics were also at the scene of the crash to assist the injured passenger from the Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck. Both vehicles required tow trucks to remove them from the scene of the accident.
“Police will investigate this crash to determine liability,” said Attorney James Johnson.
