California AA Accident Attorneys

A serious crash between three large big rigs killed one driver and badly injured the other two, as well as caused a major traffic backup Friday morning in Diamond Bar.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision took place just after 11:00 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the 60 Freeway near Diamond bar Boulevard. Although the particulars of the accident are still being investigated, it is believed that two big rigs collided before behind struck from behind by the third.

As the third truck crashed, it overturned and spilled fuel onto the highway. One of the other trucks also dumped its load of bananas out into lanes.

One of the big rig drivers was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel, and the two others were rushed to a nearby hospital, where they are listed in serious condition. No one else was hurt in the crash.

The crash forced the closure of all eastbound lanes of the highway to allow for the cleanup of fuel, bananas, and big rig debris. Lanes were expected to reopen by 6 p.m., though the cleanup process continued far into the evening, with lanes finally being reopened just after 10 p.m. The 11 hour closure caused a substantial traffic backup throughout the area, which lasted long into the afternoon.

Police investigators were also on the scene to try to determine what may have caused the initial collision between the two large trucks.

Because of their increased size and weight, the maneuverability of these large trucks is far less than in a passenger automobile. In all likelihood, the third big rig involved had no chance to avoid a collision once the first two made contact with each other.
