According to CHP officers, the Nos. 2, 3, and 4 lanes were all blocked as a result of the collision. The CHP dispatch report did not specify what types of vehicles were involved and it’s unclear whether or not there were any injuries.

At least one tow-truck was present to clean up debris and remove vehicle(s) from the scene.

Los Angeles Truck Driver Struck by His Big Rig in Freak Accident

ONTARIO, California (Dec. 16, 2013) – Juan Manuel Gonzalez, 56, of Los Angeles was killed Friday afternoon when he was accidentally struck by his own driverless big rig after the vehicle slipped into gear in the 700 block of Taylor Street, according to a press release by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

About 4:29 p.m., Gonzalez was working and in the process of transferring a transport container at a granite and marble holding yard when the accident took place. The big rig truck he was using was placed in park, but apparently it slipped into gear and drove over him after he stepped out of the truck. He died at the scene of the incident.

Ontario Police Department officers responded to the scene of the accident, but it was too late to help Gonzalez. The California Occupational Safety and Health (CAL-OSHA) is further investigating the incident to determine liability for this man’s death.

“Certainly there will be a full investigation into the fatal accident to determine what exactly happened including whether the vehicle had a mechanical problem,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “My condolences go out to his family and friends as they cope with his sudden and unexpected loss.”

Big Rig Truck Driver Texting, Speeding Hits Center Divider and 3 Cars

POMONA, California (Nov. 25, 2013) – The driver of a big rig truck was reportedly speeding and texting Monday morning just before his vehicle crashed through the center divider of the Interstate 10 freeway into opposing traffic where it struck at least three drivers, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.

About 8:40 a.m., CHP officials reported the crash in the center divider of the I-10 freeway near the State Route Highway 57 blocking both east and westbound lanes. The big rig truck driver was heading westbound on the 10 freeway when it crossed over the center divider and landed on the eastbound side of the freeway.

Paramedics were called to the big rig crash for unknown injuries.

Police issued a SigAlert for the eastbound 10 freeway just west of Vi a Verde for the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes as they were blocked for an unknown duration.  The Nos. 4 and 5 lanes remained open. The report said the westbound lanes were not affected by the crash.

Two vehicles were towed from the scene of the truck accident.

“Hopefully no one was seriously injured in this big rig truck accident,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Those who are hurt in a crash with a commercial truck driver who is at fault may have a claim for compensation for their losses.”
