Shortly after 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6th, a semi crash injured one person on the 91 Freeway in Anaheim. The collision, which involved three vehicles, occurred west of Weir Canyon Road, sending one vehicle into another and then into the center divider wall. While the semi did not remain at the scene, the driver called to report the incident to the California Highway Patrol at a nearby truck scale. One person was transported to the hospital for treatment. Authorities are investigating the collision.
“After any vehicle accident, gathering evidence from the scene and interviewing witnesses as soon as possible is crucial to determining the cause,” explains a truck accident lawyer in Orange County.
