SAN BERNARDINO: Big Rig Truck, No Brakes Crashes into Cars on Highway 99
SAN BERNARDINO, California (May 13, 2014) – Two people were injured Tuesday morning when their cars were struck by a big rig truck whose brakes failed while exiting the southbound Highway 99 at the Main Street Off ramp, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
About 7:28 a.m., CHP officers and two ambulances responded to the crash and reported that one of the vehicles was “completely totaled” and one car or person was “pinned in” and required rescue.
Police closed down the southbound off ramp to Main Street for their investigation.
”If the brakes failed to operate on this big rig truck its owner can be held responsible for damages resulting from this crash,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Anyone injured in this type of crash should get immediate help for their injuries for the best possible recovery.”
