Two people were injured on Friday when a big rig crashed into an SUV on the 5 Freeway in Mission Hills.
The accident happened at about 6:15 a.m. on the southbound 5 Freeway, near the San Fernando Mission Blvd. off-ramp. A tractor-trailer slammed into a Nissan Pathfinder. The collision caused the big rig to overturn, spilling diesel fuel across the roadway.
According to the Los Angeles City Fire Department, both drivers were injred as a result of the collision and transported to a local hospital.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a big rig accident that was the other driver's fault, you should speak to a personal injury lawyer about your right to compensation. You have a right to be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We recommend that you DO NOT speak to the other party's insurance adjuster or investigator. Their goal in talking to you is to gather information that can ultimately be used against you and reduce the amount of money that they must pay you. Their goal is NOT to help you.
