Multiple People Injured after Big Rig Collision on Sanderson Avenue near Ramona Expressway
SAN JACINTO, CA (August 8, 2019) — Multiple people suffered injuries after a big-rig accident on Sanderson Avenue on Wednesday.
According to officials, the collision involved a small passenger vehicle and a tandem trailer big-rig. It occurred on Sanderson Avenue, just north of Ramona Expressway.
Officers responded to the scene around 2:10 a.m.
California State Officials immediately located a silver Toyota coupe and a semi-truck pulling tandem bottom-dump trailers at the scene.
During their initial investigation, deputies discovered that the Toyota traveled south on North Sanderson Avenue just before the incident. Meanwhile, the northbound semi-truck was in the number two lane of traffic.
The Toyota traveled to the right then to the left before crossing into the northbound lanes of traffic. The Toyota and semi eventually collided in the northbound lanes, consequently causing major damage to both vehicles.
Paramedics rushed all occupants to area hospitals for further treatment of their injuries. Medics say the Toyota occupants are currently in serious condition.
Deputies temporarily shut down Sanderson Avenue during preliminary investigation. The roadway remained closed for about seven hours before it was later reopened around 9:00 a.m.
The sheriff’s investigation is still currently ongoing.
