Long Beach, CA (September 18, 2019) – Early Tuesday morning, September 17th, police were called to the scene of a collision between a car and a big rig in Long Beach. The crash took place on the southbound 605 Freeway near the Willow Street off-ramp at approximately 1:10 a.m.
A big rig carrying a large carnival ride collided with a Toyota Corolla, subsequently causing the large truck to overturn, according to the California Highway Patrol. The impact of the collision ultimately caused the engine to become dislodged from the big rig and ejected into the roadway.
The operator of an oncoming BMW was unable to avoid the engine block in its path and struck it. Emergency crews at the scene transported both the driver of the Toyota and the driver of the BMW to a local hospital with unspecified injuries. The driver of the big rig was not hurt.
No further information has been released.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
In 2012, the state of California saw 341 fatal collisions involving large trucks, and hundreds more that caused serious injuries. That number was reported to have made up 7.3% of all fatal truck accidents across the United States. Due to the sheer nature and power of such large vehicles, it seems fairly obvious that multi-vehicle accidents in California, particularly those involving a large truck, are among the most severe types of collisions.
