Yellow Nissan Facing Wrong Way in HOV Lanes of State Route 91 Freeway
LOS ANGELES, California (Nov. 12, 2013) – The driver of a yellow Nissan Sentra collided with the driver of a big rig truck Tuesday morning in the HOV and No. 1 lanes of the westbound State Route 91 Freeway at Cherry Avenue, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
About 10:20 a.m., CHP officials say the impact caused the Nissan to spin around and was facing the wrong direction in the HOV lane and the center divider. The big rig truck was blocking the No. 1 lane. There were no injuries reported in the crash, but typically drivers involved in crashes with big rig trucks can sustain moderate to severe soft-tissue injuries that may not immediately present themselves at the scene of the crash.
The sedan was towed from the scene of the crash and the roadway was cleared without the need to issue a SigAlert, the report said.
“Individuals who are involved in crashes with tractor trailer trucks can often sustain serious injuries including low back and neck pain, broken bones or even head injuries,” said Attorney West Thomas. “It is important to be seen by a doctor immediately if you are injured and contact a truck accident attorney for help obtaining compensation for your losses.”
