2 Injured in Fiery Semitrailer Crash

Two people suffered injuries in a fiery semitrailer crash in Adelanto Thursday morning. The truck accident occurred on Palmdale Road just west of Bellflower Street around 9 a.m. The crash involved a tractor-trailer and a Nissan Altima, but further details are unknown. Police say one vehicle was traveling west and the other was driving east when the collision occurred.

Victim Extracted from Fiery Semitrailer Crash

The crash caused the semitrailer to catch fire. However, firefighters on the scene quickly extinguished the fire. According to a witness, firefighters then extricated one of the victims from a vehicle using the Jaws of Life. One person in each vehicle was injured. One of them sustained critical injuries and was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The other was taken by ambulance to Victor Valley Global Medical Center.

The fiery semitrailer crash shut down Palmdale Road from Jonathan Street to Pearmain Street for most of the day while officers investigated. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Major Accident Investigation Team is handling the investigation.

“We hope both of the victims injured in this crash are able to recover quickly,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
