Front passenger in SUV is killed after being struck by tractor-trailer
According to an article from the Daily Bulletin, there was an accident between a big rig truck and another vehicle on the 60 Pomona Freeway, leaving one passenger dead.
The accident occurred on the Pomona Freeway in Ontario on Monday, just before 12:00 p.m.
Officials stated that a grey SUV headed east on the 60 Freeway just west of Archibald Avenue before it was struck by a semi-truck headed in the same direction.
San Bernardino County coroners reported that the semi-truck collision caused the SUV to roll over onto its roof, blocking the roadway for at least a mile.
Officials identified the man that was killed in the SUV as a 63-year-old resident of Highland named Victor Abad. Abad was transported by paramedics to Kaiser Permanente’s Ontario Medical Center. Abad later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at 12:41 p.m.
Currently, the California Highway Patrol is gathering evidence to determine the exact cause in the truck accident, and further details will be reported once the investigation has concluded.
