Two Seriously Hurt Following Collision on Highway 98 in Calexico 

A semi-truck crash left two people seriously injured in Calexico on Wednesday morning, september 14th. 

News reports stated that the accident occurred just before 1 a.m. on Highway 98. 

A westbound vehicle collided with the truck at an intersection, causing two occupants of the passenger vehicle to be trapped inside. 

The two were extricated and rushed to El Centro Regional Medical Center with major injuries. 

They have been ID’d as Daniel Emmanuel Aldrete, 36, and Janet Coronado. 

No injuries were reported from the truck driver, who has been ID’d as Joel De Jesus Murrieta Barraza, 36. 

Further details will be provided once an investigation is concluded.

Larger 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.

It is also important to remember that in the state of California a person involved in a car accident who has sustained injuries has to file a claim within two years of the accident.
