ALTADENA, California (June 14, 2013) – The driver of a big rig truck slammed into the back of a Lexis Friday morning on the northbound Interstate 5 freeway near the Alameda Avenue off ramp, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch report.
About 5:10 a.m., CHP officers reported that a 50,000-pound semi-tractor trailer truck had crashed into the back of a Lexis sedan and a pickup truck near a construction area. The big rig had major front end damage and leaked roughly 10 gallons of oil onto the freeway. The Lexis had rear-end damage.
The collision was blocking the Nos. 3 and 4 lanes of the 405 and police issued a SigAlert for roughly two hours. Paramedics were called to the scene of the crash, but the report did not indicate how many people were injured, nor the extent of those injuries.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash to determine liability for the accident.
