Chino, CA (December 8, 2021) – Firefighters had to extricate the driver of a semi-truck after he was involved in a multi-vehicle crash on a freeway in Chino. The wreck happened at around 2:20 a.m. on Wednesday, December 8. 

Officials with the Chino Valley Fire Department as well as California Highway Patrol officers were called to the scene of the wreck on the 60 Freeway just east of Mountain Avenue. It happened between two semi-trucks and a sedan for reasons still under police investigation. 

Fire crews took approximately 35 minutes to free the driver from the cab of the big rig. He was then transported to a local medical center in unknown condition. The eastbound lanes of the 60 Freeway were closed near Mountain Avenue while crews worked to secure the scene. 

At this time, it remains unclear whether any other injuries were suffered in the wreck. Authorities in Chino continue to investigate the details of the crash. 

Delays in traffic were observed in the vicinity of the crash scene for an extended period of time in the early morning hours of December 8. Emergency medical crews and other responders worked to free the trapped truck driver and assist other drivers involved. Police investigated the circumstances of the crash and directed local motorists to find alternate routes of travel for the time that the scene was occupied with officials.

We hope for the full recovery of those injured in this multi-vehicle collision. 

California Truck Accidents

Chino, CA - Two Big Rigs and 1 Sedan Involved in Traffic Crash on 60 Fwy near Mountain AveTruck accidents are often more catastrophic and fatal than other types of traffic accidents. On average, nearly 3,000 truck accidents result in injuries per year in the Golden State, while approximately 900 people lose their lives. Most of these accidents happen on the highway, and the majority of them occur in Los Angeles County, according to statistical reports. Though there are many treatment options available for the victims of these accidents, they often come at an extraordinary price. 

Victims and their family members are usually required to pay thousands in medical bills while dealing with a wide array of other financial burdens after being injured in a crash.
