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.”

Two Injured in Crash Between Car and Big Rig Truck on I-5 in Mission Viejo

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

MISSION VIEJO, California  – Two people were injured early Wednesday morning when the driver of a car crashed into a semi-tractor trailer truck, knocking the truck onto its side and subsequently blocking the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway for eight hours, according to a report in the Orange County Register.

About 2:14 a.m., the California Highway Patrol were called to the scene of the truck collision just north of Crown Valley Parkway where both drivers were injured and transported to Mission Hospital for treatment, the report said. Police say witnesses reported the driver of the car was swerving prior to the crash and will be tested to determine if alcohol or drugs were a factor, the Register reported.

The truck had to be unloaded into another truck by workers before it could be towed from the scene of the crash causing long delays, but eventually the roadway reopened to traffic about 10:40 a.m.
