10 Freeway Crash in Pomona Involving Big Rig Kills 1 Passenger
POMONA, CA (April 29, 2019) – A woman was killed early Monday morning during rainy weather in a collision between a big rig and a sedan in Pomona.
A speeding Hyundai Sonata rear-ended a big rig about 4:20 a.m. on eastbound 10 Freeway at White Avenue, and became wedged underneath the big rig.
As a result, one passenger in the car was fatally injured. The victim was only described by authorities as a woman in her 70s.
According to the preliminary investigation, the big rig had stopped in the second lane because of an accident that had occurred nearby about half an hour earlier near Garey Avenue. In that crash, a big rig had caught fire, but no injuries had been reported.
The fatal collision occurred when the Hyundai driver failed to slow down for the stopped big rig.
The Hyundai driver sustained major injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The big rig driver was unharmed.
Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
