1 Injured in Big Rig Crash Near Cabazon

One person was injured in a big rig crash on I-10 near Cabazon Monday around 1:30 p.m. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers reported that an SUV veered off the road and struck the back of a big rig, which was stopped on the side of the freeway.

Police say the big rig driver was stopped to check his load when the crash happened. CalFire had to cut the SUV driver from the vehicle. The driver was then transported to the hospital with moderate injuries. The big rig driver was not hurt.

Eastbound lanes were closed for 30 minutes while the scene was cleared. CHP is still investigating the cause of the big rig accident.

“We hope the injured driver recovers quickly and that CHP is able to determine the cause of this crash,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
