Sylmar, CA (February 4, 2020) – Four people, including two children, suffered injuries during a truck accident that occurred in Sylmar early on Sunday morning, February 2nd. The crash took place on Interstate-210 at approximately 12:30 a.m.

Authorities stated that a semi tractor-trailer hauling onions overturned in the eastbound lanes of the freeway and caught fire immediately after the crash. Individuals were reported to have been trapped inside the cab of the truck for at least a brief period of time.

Trucking Accidents in California

Trucking accidents in California, like anywhere else, are continually caused by various factors such as improper weight distribution and high speeds, among other reasons. When a trailer is inadequately loaded, even the smallest shift in momentum can cause a serious accident. Furthermore, the extremely large size and excessive power of semis often increase the severity of injuries and the chances of death.
