Woman trapped inside her car

Highway 330 in Lake Arrowhead was a nightmare during rush hour traffic the other morning when a vehicle collided with a big-rig and closed the road for more than five hours.

 

A 67-year old woman was heading down the road in her SUV when, instead of following the right-hand curve ahead of her, she continued driving straight, crossed the double yellow lines and crashed into the front bumper of a big-rig truck.  The impact caused her vehicle to spin around and land facing upright against a hillside.  In addition, the impact broke the big-rig's front wheel and axle, causing it to jackknife and rupture the fuel tank - spilling about 30 gallons of fuel on the road.

The woman was trapped inside her vehicle; it took workers almost an hour to get her out.  She was then taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital and treated for major injuries.  The 29-year old big-rig driver suffered minor injuries; he, too, was taken to a nearby hospital.

 

If you are injured in an accident, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is dedicated to holding those who negligently harm others responsible for their actions.  The right representation makes all the difference in case results.
