tucson police: 53-year-old man killed in crash
A Florida Highway Patrol report released on Thursday says that a 53-year-old man was killed in a head-on collision between a semi and a Ford Explorer in the 10 Freeway in Beaumont. The driver of the northbound sedan came to rest on the east shoulder of the highway and was pronounced dead at the scene. A black Peterbilt truck, driven by Dallas Young of Bredenbury, Saskatchewan, was struck from behind and overturned in a field east of the freeway. The driver of the southbound sedan struck the front of the driver of the northbound sedan, which was then hit by a red Ford truck.
The driver of the grey Hyundai Tucson was also involved in the crash. Authorities say that the driver overcorrected while traveling eastbound on Highway 26 near milepost 10. He straddled the center line and crossed over the westbound lane. A third driver, Kyle Rieger, was not injured in the crash. The two men were both wearing seat belts and had their eyes covered. The driver of the black Tesla suffered fatal injuries.
A San Diego man was killed in a crash on Highway 99 near Visalia. He was driving southbound at an unknown speed when he made an unsafe turn into a Volvo’s path. The Volvo hit the Mercedes, and the driver of the Mercedes continued eastward and hit a metal guardrail. Both drivers were transported to local hospitals. The investigation is ongoing. In the meantime, the driver of the Mercedes was injured and taken to the hospital.
57-year-old driver suffered minor injuries
A car accident on the 10 Freeway in Pasadena on Saturday, September 10 left a 58-year-old driver with minor injuries and a 57-year-old driver with major injuries. Both of the drivers were taken to the hospital. Fortunately, the Toyota driver was spared. Arthur Campbell, 57, heard the truck driver screaming and saw the occupants of the sedan slumped over in their seats. After the accident, the CHP reminded everyone to drive cautiously over the holiday weekend. After sundown on Wednesday, the maximum enforcement period began, and they will be on the lookout for unsafe driving practices.
The two drivers were traveling west on the 10 Freeway. The first driver was a 33-year-old woman from Texas. The second driver was a 57-year-old man from California who was driving a Nissan Altima. The crash was initiated by the 57-year-old Texas driver. The two drivers had been following each other for a couple of days.
Mariah Beltran, a woman in her 40s from South Gate, California, was a passenger in the green Honda Accord that collided with the other vehicle. The driver of the Honda was unidentified, but the passengers of the Honda had just gotten out of the car. She and Luis Miranda, a 47-year-old man from South Gate, suffered major injuries.
Truck rammed into wrong-way driver
A truck rammed into a wrong-way driver on the 10 freeway today, killing the driver. Two people in the semi-truck were not seriously injured in the incident. The collision occurred around 3:40 a.m., and the freeway was closed for four hours until the interchange reopened. The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing. One suspect was driving under the influence.
After the collision, the truck driver sustained serious injuries. The wrong-way driver, a woman in her 20s, was driving the wrong direction for several miles. The California Highway Patrol officers ran a traffic break, where they saw the blue BMW approaching oncoming traffic. The officer deliberately slid into oncoming traffic to stop the driver. The accident left the wrong-way driver unconscious, but the officer in the SUV had no other choice but to crash into the car.
After the crash, Toledo police released footage from their body cameras showing the chase between the two vehicles. The video shows the officers stopping the pursuit and checking on the drivers. The footage is disturbing. The wrong-way driver was killed in the accident, and the other drivers were seriously injured. One of the officers sustained an arm injury. While investigating the crash, a SigAlert was issued on the 10 Freeway.
Kia Sorento rolled
A Kia Sorento was involved in a 10-car pileup on a California freeway today, and the company has recalled more than 377,000 vehicles for this problem. When your foot is not on the brake and you shift into gear, your car may roll away and crash. The issue occurs when the shifter lever is pushed too hard, causing a crack in the shifter. The problem has caused three injuries and has been cited in over 377,000 accidents.
There are seven airbags in the Kia Sorento, with curtain airbags extending to the third row. These airbags are also located in the front and back seat, although they do not cover the third row’s windows. This SUV also has ISOFIX points for child safety seats and top tether mounts for your children. But if you’re looking for a large SUV for a family, a Sorento might not be the best choice.
The driver of the Kia Sorento, Jamiya Gibbs, was the only driver in the vehicle. Her car was traveling north when the collision happened. A Chrysler Pacifica, driven by Kevin Chasteen, 21, tried to avoid the collision, but was unable to do so and was struck by the Kia. The Kia driver lost control and rolled several times, causing a serious accident. Gibbs was pronounced dead at the scene. Gibbs’ three passengers were transported to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Postell sustained minor injuries.
A tanker truck that crashed on the 10 Freeway in Banning on Thursday morning spilled thousands of gallons of diesel fuel on the road, closing all lanes for several hours. The accident occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on the eastbound lanes of the highway, between Wabash Avenue and Yucaipa Boulevard. Crews were called to clean up the spill at approximately 8 a.m., but it took nearly four hours to complete the cleanup.
A hazmat crew is on the scene scrubbing up the fuel spill from the wrecked semitrailer. The CHP is investigating the cause of the crash, which is expected to cause a large amount of water and mud to spread. Drivers are urged to take extreme caution and drive slowly in wet conditions. During this time, KESQ News Channel 3 will be providing updates on the spill’s extent.
After the spill was cleaned up, three lanes on westbound Interstate 10 were reopened, including the right lane. The freeway was closed near 51st Avenue for about three hours to clean up the spill. At the time of the spill, there were still a large number of drivers on the freeway. But they are expected to be back soon. The cleanup effort will require the help of law enforcement, environmental agencies, and other emergency personnel.
SigAlert issued for all lanes on 10 freeway in West Covina
A SigAlert has been issued for all westbound lanes of the 10 Freeway in West Covina, California. The closure will last at least 30 minutes. Aerial video of the freeway at that time showed a full closure of the westbound lanes near the Sunset Avenue exit. According to CHP, the crash involved at least 10 vehicles. The police are still trying to identify all drivers and witnesses.
The CHP’s Southern Division tweeted that one lane was closed until 7 a.m. The closure eventually went into effect at around 4:40 a.m. The lane was reopened 15 minutes before the scheduled time. It is unclear whether this incident will affect other lanes. SigAlerts are not the only way that Californians can be alerted of traffic accidents.
SigAlerts were originally created by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1955. As the number of automobiles increased, traffic accidents and jams became increasingly severe. At first, radio stations broadcast traffic conditions, but the LAPD refused to call them and repeated the information. Today, however, the CHP uses SigAlerts to alert motorists of a major traffic accident.
