 Mammoth Lakes Big Rig Truck Accident US Highway 395, Sherwin Summit (8/31)Fiery Car Crash, Big Rig Truck US Highway 395 in Mammoth Lakes

MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. (August 31, 2018) — A vehicle crashed into the back of a big rig truck in a fiery, major-injury crash Friday morning on US Highway 395 at Sherwin Summit, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported about 4:06 a.m. this morning. There was one person in the vehicle who was trapped, but eventually freed from the car that hit the truck. The vehicle became fully engulfed in flames and the two motorists were blocking both traffic lanes.

Paramedics responded and rushed the injured to a hospital for treatment of major injuries.

Mammoth Lakes Crash Investigation

A full investigation into what caused this collision is underway.

We extend our heartfelt prayers to all those injured. 

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision, but if you were injured the first step should be to obtain medical help. A police report will be necessary to file an insurance claim against the at-fault driver who caused the collision. However, it’s important to note that many insurance companies will fight these claims or offer far less than a person is owed.

We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if not call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
