Multiple Truck Crash
Crashes. They happen anywhere and anytime. They can involve any amount of vehicles, from one to several. You never know when a crash can and will happen. If you’re a truck driver, since you’re on the road so much your chances are likely double for a crash. However, vehicles are pretty cautious about big trucks.
Early morning crashes are sadly pretty common. You’re super tired and on your way to work. You’re worrying about things you probably can’t control and your mind isn’t 100% on driving.
According to reports, an early morning crash got pretty tangled when a crash happened that involved a beer truck, tow truck, and tour bus. The crash left boxes of Budweiser all over the place, which caused lane closure on the 10 Freeway on June 3rd.
CHP says that the crash was reported around 1:30 in the morning. The incident happened near the Red Cloud Mine Road.
There had to be a SigAlert issued and the left lane of the two lane eastbound side of the Freeway had to be closed down for a bit. The lane was luckily reopened by 3:30 that morning. The right lane had to be closed after that though. It was closed until after 6 in the morning.
Of course that probably took a while to clean up and investigate.

Sadly though, when a van hit the truck it burst into flames. All four people in the van sadly died that day. <p> According to reports, the truck had previously been cited for mechanical defects. <p> His sentencing makes sense, since he knew that the truck had issues.
