One Injured on 5 Freeway near Arburua Road
Investigators are working to determine liability regarding a collision involving a big rig and passenger car that occurred on Monday morning.
The two-vehicle crash occurred in Los Banos on January 10th, around 11:18 a.m.
CHP reported that the crash took place within the southbound lanes of the 5 Freeway, just north of Arburua Road.
As a result, one person suffered minor injuries. It is unclear, however, if the patient was hospitalized.
The crash remains under investigation.
It is most often those in passenger cars that are killed in large truck collisions. Semi trucks typically weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars which leaves occupants of smaller cars more vulnerable.
It is also much more difficult for larger trucks to stop so their braking capability can also be a factor in these collisions.
According to the D.O.T., in 2019 67% of fatal collisions involving large trucks were occupants of a passenger car.
