One Person Killed in 15 Freeway Collision
A deadly car accident was reported in Corona Friday morning, July 1st.
CHP reported that the wreck took place around 2:40 a.m. within the southbound lanes of the 15 Freeway.
A semi-truck and sedan collided for unknown reasons near Temescal Canyon Road.
Due to the impact, the semi-truck caught fire.
One person was also killed as a result, unfortunately. Their name is being withheld pending notification of kin.
Further details will be provided once an investigation is concluded.
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.
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.
