A driver and a passenger were critically injured in an Orange County truck accident involving a big rig. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the major injury accident occurred at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Imperial Highway in La Habra the early morning of February 21, 2011. The two injured victims had to be removed from their white Ford Mustang after it was crushed in an accident with a TAMO, Inc. truck. Both victims sustained critical injuries. It is unclear what caused this accident or if either driver will be cited for the accident.
My thoughts and prayers are with the injured victims of this car versus truck accident. I wish them both a speedy and complete recovery.
