1 Hurt in Visalia Car Accident
VISALIA, CA (January 29, 2019) – A driver sustained injuries following a car pileup on Plaza Drive on January 27.
According to the Visalia Police Department, the incident began when a private big rig with a tank trailer was pulling out onto Plaza Drive and was hit by a Chevrolet Silverado.
The Silverado’s cab was damaged after it went under the tank. Police said that the initial crash caused head trauma to the driver, but injuries were non-life-threatening.
Meanwhile, a Nissan Altima with five occupants also hit the tank trailer and became wedged below. The occupants of the Nissan were reportedly uninjured.
A GMC Sierra was towing a portable restroom trailer, attempted to avoid crashing with the tank trailer. However, it clipped the end of the trailer and then collided into a wall. That person was not harmed, the police added.
The authorities revealed that speed and thick fog were the possible factors that brought down visibility to around 150 to 250 feet. Drugs were not believed as a factor in the crash.
