Semi-Truck Crash on Interstate 15 Injures Driver and Passenger
Escondido, CA (April 23, 2021) – On Thursday, a 32-year-old male driver and his 32-year-old passenger were injured in a semi-truck crash on Interstate 15.
The accident took place at about 4:10 a.m. near Del Lago Boulevard.
Apparently, the driver of a stolen 2014 Ford Fusion sedan rear-ended a semi-truck while both vehicles were in the far right lane of the highway.
As a result, the Ford ended up wedged under the big rig’s trailer trapping the driver and his inside the vehicle.
Right away, responders freed both victims from the wreckage and took them to Palomar Hospital for major injury treatment.
Meanwhile, the 43-year-old man semi-truck driver was not injured in the accident.
Officers suspect the Ford driver was under the influence at the time of the accident.
Driving can be very dangerous if you are not driving in a safe and legal manner. This is especially true if you are driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. It is important to always abide by all driving laws and to do your part to prevent DUI accidents.
