One person was killed and three people were injured in a six-vehicle crash on the 210 Freeway in Pasadena early Thursday morning.
The accident happened on the underground transition road of the eastbound Foothill Freeway at the 134 Freeway interchange. The crash involved three big rigs and three cars. According to the California Highway Patrol, two of the big rigs overturned in the accident.
A driver of one of the overturned tractor-trailers, a 50-year-old male from Arroyo Grande, was pronounced dead at the scene. Three other people were reported to be injured in the accident.
According to the CHP, rain is believed to have been a factor in the crash.
Freeway crashes are a common occurrence in Pasadena. If you or a loved has suffered injury or death as the result of a Pasadena freeway accident, you should seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. Speak to a lawyer before you speak to an insurance adjuster. The insurance company is only interested in gathering information that will help them to minimize any payment they must make to you down the line. They are not interested in helping you or compensating you fairly.
