Freeways Reopen Following Massive Truck Accidents

Early yesterday morning, nine big rigs collided in two crashes in the tunnels on the truck bypass route in the Newhall Pass. The collisions, tentatively blamed on speeding over what could have been wet roads, occurred on the southbound Golden State Freeway at the southbound Antelope Valley Freeway, with the first reported incident occurring at 3:07 a.m.

While there were minor injuries reported, no one was killed in these incidents.

The southbound truck route at the 5 and 14 Freeway transition roads reopened Tuesday afternoon after two separate collisions caused nine big rig trucks to jackknife, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The first collision involving four trucks occurred around 3 a.m., just north of Edison Road.

The second crash, involving five big rigs, took place a short time later at the north end of the tunnel.

Los Angeles County firefighters freed one big rig driver who was trapped just before 6 a.m. He was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

At least six heavy duty tow trucks have been ordered to help clear the scene.

The causes of both accidents are under investigation. Officials suspect speed and weather may have been factors because it was raining at the time of the accidents.

The collisions, tentatively blamed on speeding over what could have been wet roads, occurred on the southbound Golden State Freeway at the southbound Antelope Valley Freeway, with the first reported incident occurring at 3:07 a.m.

The initial crash involved four trucks, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Traffic initially stopped behind the first crash, but then a second crash that occurred involving five big rigs.

More than two-and-a-half hours after the crash, firefighters were still working to free the trapped driver. He suffered moderate to major injuries and was transported to a local hospital after he was finally extricated from his rig.

The cause of the initial crash is still under investigation, but weather may have been a factor since it was sprinkling at the time.

The southbound truck route was closed at the scene of the crash, according to the CHP. It is expected to remain closed until this afternoon.
