At about 11 a.m. on Monday, February 6th, two women were seriously injured in a semi crash in San Clemente. The accident occurred at the Interstate 5 off-ramp near Avenida Pico when a semi ran a red light while exiting the freeway, colliding with a sedan and an SUV. A second semi was also involved in the crash. Paramedics transported the two women, believed to be in their twenties, to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo. Another person suffered minor injuries, while a fourth declined treatment at the scene. Authorities are investigating the incident, explains a truck accident lawyer in Orange County.
San Clemente accounted for 2 of the 101 fatalities and 242 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Orange County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System.
