On Thursday, November 1, 2018 a fiery car accident killed three adults and one child at approximately 7:30PM on the right shoulder of the freeway north of Weldon Canyon Road.
A black SUV, traveling at a high speed, slammed into the back of a stopped truck and trailer. The driver of the SUV and his three passengers died at the scene of the accident, but the driver of the big rig remained uninjured.
“The crash caused the SUV to catch fire, and the flames spread to the trailer, which was loaded with lumber. The flames charred a hillside next to the freeway before being extinguished by Los Angeles County Fire Department crews, the CHP said.
First responders arrived to find the SUV stuck beneath the truck and engulfed in flames, authorities said. The crash snarled traffic all the way to the 210 Freeway late Thursday as several lanes were shut down.
Authorities towed the big rig off the freeway and reopened all northbound lanes shortly after 7 a.m. Friday, according to the CHP” (LATimes.com).
