Porter Ranch, CA – Pool Cleaning Truck Involved in Car Accident

Porter Ranch, CA (November 26, 2018) – Shortly before 8:00 this morning there was an auto accident between a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck carrying several gallons of swimming pool cleaning chemicals at 10800 North Tampa Avenue.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, approximately four gallons of muriatic acid and 15 gallons of chlorine were spilled onto the roadway and off-gassing after the accident. One of the drivers, a 50-year-old man, received medical transport to a nearby hospital where he received treatment for moderate injuries. According to reports, his injuries were in no way related to the chemicals that were spilled.

The Los Angeles Fire Department’s HazMat team arrived on the scene quickly to neutralize the chemical spill. The investigation into the cause of this accident remains open.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents in California

Due to the incredibly high volume of traffic on California’s roadways, accidents involving all types of commercial vehicles remain a serious, ongoing problem. Data that has been collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives an indication of the actual scope of this issue. In 2011 there was a total of 282 fatalities involving commercial trucks. Just three years later the annual number of deaths jumped up to 301 after it had been on the decline for the previous two. Over a five year period lasting from 2011 to 2015, the county of Los Angeles saw the highest number of fatalities from commercial truck accidents with a total of 430 over the five year period.
