California Highway Patrol arrived to the scene around 12:40 p.m., at the intersection of Airport Boulevard and Arlington Avenue.

Officials reported that a vehicle crashed into a semi-truck trailer for still unknown reasons. Upon the impact, the sedan went under the side of the truck.

Fire crews rescued and extricated two people that were trapped inside the sedan vehicle.

Medics took both victims to a local hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. Meanwhile, the truck driver escaped unscathed.

In addition, both directions of the roadway shutdown for an undisclosed amount of time to allow for cleanup and preliminary duties.

Because of their sheer size, large vehicles, like semi-trucks and trailers, increase the risk of a crash. If you’re driving one, always be mindful of your vehicle’s large height and weight. Maintain your travel lane and follow the speed limit. Also, adjust accordingly to give way for lane changes and other vehicles.
