PASADENA, CA (November 28, 2023) — Two people suffered an injury in an overturned big rig accident on the 134 Freeway near San Rafael Avenue.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the semi-truck crash happened around 11:00 p.m. Sunday. For unknown reasons, a big rig crashed into a Corvette, causing the big rig to overturn on its side. Soon after, traffic investigators responded and closed all lanes except the carpool lane to investigate.
At the scene, authorities found two trapped victims, and the Los Angeles Fire Department released them shortly before ushering them to a local hospital.
Information surrounding the occupant in the Corvette was unavailable. If anyone has seen this crash and can help traffic investigators identify the cause, please call the CHP.
Navigating around larger vehicles, like big rigs, is risky. Remember to stay out of their blind spots and leave enough space when switching lanes in front of them. These vehicles may be traveling slower than you and hauling cargo. You can avoid truck accidents when you share the road with others.
