Norris R Whittington Sr Killed in Diamond Bar Car Crash
Diamond Bar, CA (August 31, 2020) – On Monday, 55-year-old Norris Whittington Sr of Bellflower died in a car crash on the Pomona (60) Freeway.
The fatal crash happened Monday, which impacted more than a dozen vehicles on Diamond Bar Boulevard.
Rodrigo Jimenez of the California Highway Patrol said Whittington was driving a flatbed tractor-trailer and drifted right to avoid a slow-moving vehicle at about 1:10 AM.
Apparently, this caused a chain of reaction collision, affecting multiple other vehicles.
A piece of heavy equipment fell off the truck and onto the freeway, while hydraulic fluid spewed out. Moreover, it left a 200-foot trail.
In total, 15 vehicles became victims of the debris. One driver and a passenger said they were in pain, but refused to be taken to hospital.
The California Highway Patrol thus issued a SigAlert around 1:40 a.m., that lasted until about 7 a.m.
CHP said neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the crash.
Please contact Officers Sergio Garcia or Jonathan Contreras at the CHP Baldwin Park office at 626-338-1164 if you have details about the crash.
