At least 15 people were killed in an accident when an SUV struck a semi truck outside the city of El Centro, officials at the El Centro Regional Medical Center said Tuesday.
According to California Highway Patrol, the crash took place on State Route 115 near the Mexican border, about 60 miles west of Arizona.
According to officials with the El Centro Regional Medical Center, it’s believed that there were nearly 30 passengers in the SUV that struck a semi truck full of gravel.
CHP described the incident as a “major accident,” and said 14 people were found dead at the scene. Seven others were rushed to the El Centro Regional Medical Center, where one person did not survive.
Two others involved in the crash were taken to Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley, Calif.
This story is developing, but accidents like these are not an uncommon occurrence. Unfortunately, there are thousands of truck accidents every year involving smaller, more vulnerable vehicles.
These are very dangerous situations because the resulting crash can be devastating, if not, deadly.
When this happens, it’s critical to first get immediate medical assistance for all of those involved. Afterwards, it’s also a good idea to contact a local law firm that can help you recover the compensation you need.
