BREA, California (August 1, 2013) – A driver was pinned underneath a big rig truck Thursday morning on the southbound State Route 57 Orange Freeway just south of E. Lambert Road, according to a dispatch report by the California Highway Patrol.
About 8 a.m., CHP officials reported a light grey two-door sedan had crashed with the driver of a big rig tractor trailer truck. Several good Samaritans were trying to get the injured people out of the sedan. The crash was blocking all lanes of the freeway, CHP officers said.
Brea Fire Department emergency workers reported to the scene of the crash with an ambulance to possibly transport those who were injured. A SigAlert was issued for roughly 30 minutes due to blockage of the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 lanes, the CHP reported.
“Drivers are at risk of critical injuries when they are involved in a crash with a large big rig truck,” said Attorney West Thomas, a truck accident specialist with headquarters in Newport Beach. “Those injured should seek immediate medical attention as well as help from a truck accident attorney.”
