Ontario, CA (November 14, 2019) – One person was killed and three others suffered injuries following a collision with a tractor-trailer on Wednesday morning, November 13th. The fatal wreck was reported at approximately 10:20 a.m. along the Interstate 10 Freeway at Mountain Avenue in the town of Ontario.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the operator of a tractor-trailer was traveling along the freeway, just west of Mountain Avenue, when the truck collided with a Nissan Rogue. The Nissan then subsequently crashed into the back of a Honda Civic. Emergency crews were immediately dispatched to the scene.
Paramedics verified that an occupant in the Nissan was killed in the crash. The driver of that vehicle, as well as a two-year-old passenger, were hospitalized with moderate injuries. The driver of the Honda also suffered injuries. All three victims were transported to Pomona Valley Hospital.
No identities have been released as the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.
While almost any car accident holds the chance to be devastating, those which involve tractor-trailers or more than two vehicles are often the most severe. In 2018, the deaths of approximately 48 people per 100,000 were reported as the result of injuries suffered in car accidents. Unfortunately, multi-vehicle accidents in California are commonly fatal.
We realize that there is often nothing as difficult as suffering a sudden injury, and especially the unexpected loss of a family member. During such a time, it is essential to understand that you may have substantial rights that are protected by law.
