California Truck Accident Snarls Traffic
A fiery truck accident closed all eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway recently. The collision between a tractor-trailer and a late model Ford Mustang snarled traffic for hours as emergency response personnel investigated the truck accident and cleaned debris from the road. The California Highway Patrol received notification of the crash around 1:10 a.m. and arrived at the accident scene between Knott Avenue and Beach Boulevard in Buena Park.
When police arrived, both the Mustang and the truck were on fire with the truck on its side with its cab, but not its trailer, engulfed in flames. Accident investigators said that the driver of the Mustang fled the accident scene and has not yet been found. CHP officers reported that all eastbound lanes of the 95 Freeway were clear and opened by 6:30 a.m. It’s no secret that California leads the nation in fatal auto accidents every year. In 2003, 5,725 people suffered fatal injuries on California streets and highways, and of that number, 332 were fatal truck accidents.
