23 People Injured in Collision between Big Rigs and Tour Bus on 60 Freeway

By Robert Kahn on January 12, 2015 - Comments off

According to a report by NBC Los Angeles, on the morning of January 7, two big rigs and a tour bus collided on 60 Freeway in Hacienda Heights. A total of 23 people sustained minor to moderate injuries in the incident.

California Highway Patrol officials believe that one of the big rigs started the chain collision by colliding into the second big rig which, in turn, went towards the center median and proceeded to crash into the BusLimo Express tour bus. Thirty people were on the bus, which was heading towards Pala Casino.

Some of the bus passengers were treated at the scene while others were taken to local hospitals. BusLimo Express sent another bus to pick up the passengers who were uninjured and transported them to the casino south of Temecula, as was originally planned.

For several hours after the crash, all but one lane on the eastbound 60 Freeway were closed. Heavy traffic persisted for miles until lanes opened back up around 1 p.m.

At the time of the report, the cause of the crash was under investigation.

Freeway accidents often result in devastating injuries and other severe damages, mostly due to the high rates of speed involved in such incidents. If you or a loved one has sustained considerable losses in a freeway accident caused by another party, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. However, in order to collect on these damages, you may first want to first file a claim, preferably with help from a legal professional.
