Crash Leaves Truck Dangling From Overpass

A crash yesterday left a truck hauling two trailers hanging from overpass next to the  14 Freeway in Acton, California.

California Highway Patrol says that the crash happened around 1:40 p.m. yesterday when a truck hauling two empty flatbed trailers on the Ward Avenue overpass for some reason lost control and crashed down the embankment.

The truck driver was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

It isn’t yet clear what caused the crash, though one report claims that another vehicle struck the truck and caused it to fishtail.

The crash is still under investigation by the CHP.
