RIVERSIDE: Big Rig Truck Jackknifes in Accident with 2 Cars on 91 Freeway
RIVERSIDE, California (June 30, 2014) — At least one person was injured when a white big rig truck jackknifed Monday afternoon in a crash involving several drivers on the eastbound State Route 91 Freeway at Madison Street, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
CHP officers reported a white big rig truck crashed into a burgundy Toyota sedan and the two vehicles became stuck together against a wall. The truck driver was trying to maneuver his vehicle to free the car, but a man jumped out of the vehicle and told him to stop because he was “squishing” the driver.
The driver finally stopped moving the truck, but there was also a fuel leak and gas or oil was gushing into lanes.
At least one person suffered a head injury and was bleeding at the scene.
A SigAlert was issued for up to two or three hours about 2:23 p.m. and a partial closure of the freeway, but the HOV and No. 1 lanes remained open.
“Police will head up on investigation into the collision and assign liability,” said Attorney James Johnson.
