Two Big-Rigs Crash on I-10 Near Coachella

Two
big-rigs overturned early this morning, September 30, 2011, in the eastbound
lanes of Interstate 10 in Riverside County. The accident, which occurred around
3:31 a.m. east of the Coachella Valley stopped eastbound traffic near the
Cactus City Rest Area, and caused a traffic backup five miles long. California
Highway Patrol closed the eastbound freeway at Dillon Roads.

Crews
righted both overturned big-rigs by 10:00 a.m., but the freeway was still a
mess from spilled fuel. Roughly 40 to 60 gallons of fuel leaked onto the
freeway, but according to the fire department, the spill was contained on the
shoulder.

Both
people who were driving the big-rigs freed themselves from their vehicles after
the accident, the Riverside County Fire Department reported. One of the drivers
suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a hospital. Paramedics
treated the other driver at the scene of the collision, but the patient did not
want to go to a hospital.

Interstate
10 is a main transportation corridor between California and Arizona. According
to the California Department of Transportation, the eastbound lanes of the
interstate will stay closed until noon Friday, and possibly later.
