Four Injured in I-10 Big-Rig Crash

A big-rig crash left four injured, including two teenagers, and spilled approximately 100 gallons of fuel on the roadway. The accident occurred on westbound 1-10 near Loma Linda and Redlands.

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), in the early morning hours, a 1997 Tacoma pick-up veered into the path of a tractor-trailer. The impact caused the big-rig to cross all westbound lanes of traffic while dragging the Tacoma under the rig. The big-rig ultimately overturned and came to rest across the median guardrail with the pick-up truck still pinned underneath.

The driver and passengers of the pick up truck suffered minor to moderate injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer was hospitalized in critical condition. Investigators are exploring whether wet, rainy conditions at the time played a role in the crash.
