Rollover Collision on 210 Freeway at Michillinda Avenue
Investigators are working to determine fault regarding a collision that occurred in Pasadena Wednesday morning.
According to CHP, the accident occurred at 5:35 a.m. within the westbound lanes of the 210 Freeway.
It was on April 6th when a big rig collided with a dark-colored sedan for unknown reasons.
Upon impact, the sedan overturned onto its roof after being sent to the right-hand shoulder.
A passerby helped the driver of the sedan get out of the vehicle before first responders arrived.
It was reported that he suffered a broken leg from the crash and was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Reports also stated that the big rig driver did not stay at the scene but was later located by authorities.
Police also issued a SigAlert for an hour due to the closure of the Rosemead Boulevard on-ramp to westbound 210 Freeway.
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.
