Rainy Weather Monday Causes Slick Roads, Killing Two
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (April 30, 2019) - Several people were injured and two killed in auto accidents Monday morning after a night of heavy rain.
Multiple crashes were reported early Monday, including a fatal crash involving a sedan and a semi-truck on Freeway 10 in Pomona. Witnesses told the California Highway Patrol (CHP) it appeared the sedan had rear-ended the truck. Wet roads may have been a factor in the crash.
One person died at the scene near White Avenue.
"The collision occurred when (the Hyundai driver) failed to slow down for the stopped big rig," according to a CHP statement. "Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected to be a factor in this collision."
Another individual died when his vehicle collided with a semi-truck at about 4:00 a.m. on Freeway 5 in Sun Valley. The accident occurred on the northbound Golden State Freeway at Tuxford Street. It was raining at the time of the accident.
The deceased was identified Monday afternoon by the coroner’s office as William Nakahara, 63, of Cypress.
Lanes were also closed for a time on Monday night on the southbound 15 Freeway in Fontana due to a crash involving eight vehicles. Only minor injuries were reported.
