Semi-Truck & Pickup Truck Collide on Highway 65
Two vehicles collided at a Terra Bella intersection on Thursday afternoon, resulting in major injuries.
The collision occurred at 12:17 p.m. on January 27th on State Route Highway 65 at Avenue 95 and Terra Bella Avenue.
According to CHP, a semi-truck and red Chevrolet pickup were among the vehicles involved.
It is unclear at this time what caused the collision within the southbound lanes.
Firefighters arrived at the scene to provide aid to one person who sustained major injuries.
They were rushed to a nearby hospital and their alcohol levers were also tested.
An active investigation is underway to determine liability.
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.
According to the D.O.T., in 2019 67% of fatal collisions involving large trucks were occupants of a passenger car.
