Semi-Truck and Car Collision on Main Street Resulted in Injuries
HESPERIA, CA (July 18, 2022) – Sunday, a fiery collision, involving a semi-truck, on Main Street, sent one person to the hospital.
The crash happened at 8:48 am, on July 3 at the intersection of Main Street and Mesa Linda Avenue. According to reports, the semi-truck was traveling towards the intersection. When the light turned red, the semi-truck continued on its course, colliding with a sedan. After the collision, the truck careened forward for several hundred feet. While still moving forward, it hit a fire hydrant and high-pressure water valve along the sidewalk’s edge. It came to stop in front of a gas station before catching on fire. The semi-truck left debris scattered in its wake.
The ruptured waterlines caused water to be sprayed onto the roadway. It took about an hour for crews to shut the water off.
Meanwhile, emergency crews rescued the trapped sedan driver before rushing him to a local hospital with minor injuries.
Currently, an active investigation to determine further details is still currently underway.
