Slick roads in Southern California due to heavy rain caused havoc for drivers.
A series of crashes were reported at the same spot in Santa Clarita, ABC7 reported
A motorist captured a truck coming off an overpass and landing in the crash scene below.
It shows a box truck advertising Toyo Tires out of control on the upper roadway and tumbling upside down over the guardrail onto southbound truck bypass lanes below. There were already several wrecked vehicles, including a big rig, on the roadway at that spot. The box truck fell upside down and landed on top of an SUV and the already-overturned big rig.
“At first I was in shock,” said Tommy Dorado, a commuter who was filming the scene of the earlier crash when the box truck suddenly fell down onto the scene. “I was in disbelief. I honestly couldn’t believe i was witnessing something like that firsthand.”
He was concerned that firefighters, police and others from the first crash were hurt. But, no responders were injured.
Two people were transported for medical treatment after the truck fell over the side, and another person had been transported from an earlier crash.
No one was inside the overturned rig and SUV that were on the roadway from the earlier crash.
