Speeding Car Crashes Semi Truck on 5 Freeway North of Howard Road Exit

WESTLEY, CA: High Speed Big-Rig and Vehicle Crash on Southbound 5 Freeway

WESTLEY, CALIFORNIA (April 25, 2017) – A man became trapped last Monday night after a high-speed crash occurred between his car and a semi-truck on the southbound 5 Freeway north of the Howard Road off-ramp. The car, described as a white sedan, had been driving at a high speed when it crashed into the semi-truck at about 8:00 p.m. The force of the impact was so great that the male driver of the car became trapped inside.

Responding firefighters had to extricate him. The man’s car had actually been cut in half and the parts strewn across the roadway. According to a witness, a total of eight vehicles were involved in the crash but there are not further details available. Emergency and towing services arrived and cleaned up the debris. The accident is still under investigation.

“Many people don’t realize they can suffer a traumatic brain injury in a car accident even when there has been no head impact,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm, a Westley car accident and personal injury law firm. “Indeed, the symptoms often show up later when the victim can’t remember names or events as well. It’s important to see a doctor and treat this type of injury soon after a collision.”
