Fortunately, after two Pasadena big rig truck freeway accidents this week, caused by the overnight rain that came down both nights, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that no occupants of the big rig trucks or other people on the freeway suffered serious injuries.
Early this morning, a big rig truck crashed on the 210 freeway, near where it meets the 134 freeway. Two other big rigs apparently were unable to avoid the wreck and crashed as well. The freeway was closed for about six hours while the truck accident remnants were cleared.
Yesterday, also due to the night rain, a big rig crashed on the 210 freeway in Pasadena. Fortunately, neither Pasadena truck accident resulted in serious injuries.
A representative from the California Highway Patrol stated that these types of truck accidents in the rain are often caused when the big rig truck driver does not appropriately adjust his or her speed for road conditions, including curves in the road and transitions between different freeways.
