9 Big Rigs Involved in Highway Crash

Near Santa Clarita, California, nine big rigs were involved in a recent accident on the truck route near the Newhall Pass. According to the local ABC station, the crash happened on the southbound 5 Freeway at the 14 bound Freeway connector. About nine big rigs were involved in the catastrophe, which was made up of two separate crashes near each other. The beginning of the calamity occurred when a dump truck lost control and crashed, causing four big rigs to rear end each other behind the swerving vehicle.
