Semi Truck Crashes Across Center Divider and Hits Several Vehicles on 15 Freeway in Baker

 
BAKER, CA (July 13, 2019 – Fifteen people sustained injuries following a multi-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon on 15 Freeway.
 
The crash happened around 3:00 p.m. when a tractor-trailer truck traveling southbound on the freeway crashed through the center divider and struck eight other vehicles. The semi came to a stop on the right shoulder of the northbound side, blocking the second lane.
 
A total of 15 people sustained injuries, three of them suffered major injuries and airlifted to a trauma center. The other 12 patients were transported by ground ambulances.
 
Firefighters arrived to extract some of the trapped victims in the wreckage. One of those injured became ejected from a white Ford SUV. Another person suffered a heart attack.
 
The crash prompted officials to shut down the northbound side of 15 Freeway and motorists were advised to expect delays.
 
It is unclear what caused the semi truck to crash. Investigation of this incident is ongoing.
 
One problem that plagues truck drivers routinely is drowsy driving. Accidentally falling asleep at the wheel can lead to a serious truck accident. Stay focused on the road but keep your eyes moving. Periodically shift your eyes to the side-view mirrors, the rear-view mirror, and ahead of the road. Doing this, you can spot a potentially dangerous situation before it happens.
