Fullerton, CA – Several Injured in Semi Truck Jackknife Crash

Motor vehicle crash in San Diego County

Fullerton, CA (August 1, 2018) – Southbound Highway 57 in Fullerton experienced gridlock this afternoon.  Around 12:03 pm, a jackknifed tractor-trailer, and several vehicles were involved in a crash.  In addition to the tractor-trailer, a Chevy Equinox and a Dodge Ram collided with one another.  The tractor-trailer jackknifed across four lanes of the highway.  This caused a major traffic delay as police worked to clear the crash scene.

The drivers of the Equinox and Dodge Ram were both hurt in the crash.  Medical assistance was rendered on the scene before both drivers were transported to a nearby hospital.  There is no update on their condition.  By 1:00 pm, all vehicles were being towed away from the scene.  Police are still investigating the crash.  There is no word on a cause of the collision and no further information is available at this time.

Southern California Highway Accident

We hope that the victims of this highway accident have a quick and full recovery.  A highway accident is often serious in nature, due to several factors, including the speed of the vehicles involved.

In some multi-car accidents such as this one, liability can be difficult to determine.  In a multiple vehicle crash, it is not always clear which vehicle started the chain reaction of events leading to the collision.  Unless there are eyewitnesses to the crash, a thorough accident reconstruction may be necessary.

In this case, the police will look at several factors, including the type of damage suffered, the position of the vehicles, skid marks, and other factors to help in the reconstruction process.  After completing their investigation, officers will release a written crash report detailing their findings.  At that time, any innocent victims will have the right to pursue a personal injury claim.
