Fourth victim also killed after fatal 3-vehicle car crash on the 10 Freeway
According to a recent article from the Daily Bulletin, there was a fatal three-vehicle car crash that took the lives of a La Puente family on the 10 Freeway in Fontana last Friday, August 4.
Per the article, the accident occurred around 12:30 p.m. when Maria Briseno, 58, was driving a Honda sedan eastbound on the freeway just west of Citrus Avenue in Fontana.
The vehicle began to overheat and the driver pulled over onto the right shoulder lane, the article said.
Meanwhile, Luis Sanchez, a Riverside man, drove his Nissan Frontier onto the shoulder lane, crashing into a man and woman standing outside the Honda sedan, California Highway Patrol reported.
Furthermore, the Nissan vehicle continued and pushed the Honda into the rear of a Toyota Tacoma that was caught in the accident after the driver, identified as Jose Prieto, 60, decided to stop and help the broken vehicle.
The Toyota Tacoma truck then veered left across all traffic lanes before crashing into the center divider.
The family members, Maria Rodriguez, 58, Isaac Briseno, 12, and Ailyn Miguel, 12, were identified as the passengers inside the Honda. Tragically, they passed away at the scene of the accident, sources said.
As mentioned in the article, Jose Prieto, 60, also perished in the fatal traffic accident.
