Blythe Crash Leaves 4 Dead and Many Injured

Blythe crash leaves four dead and seven seriously injured

On Friday a tractor trailer from a Rialto, California trucking company was carrying a load of pipes on an overnight run near the California and Arizona border. A bus was carrying a load of passengers on an overnight trip from El Paso, Texas to California. The bus had a good safety rating. The trucking company had a good safety record as well. Why then did 4 people end up dead and seven others were hospitalized with serious injuries?

At some time during the night, the load on the back of the truck came loose and piping spread across all lanes of Interstate 10 at about 2:00 a.m. A couple of cars could not avoid the debris and crashed, causing no injuries. The bus, unfortunately could not avoid the pipes and either swerved to avoid the road hazard or struck the piping and lost control.

The collision put another dozen people in local hospitals with minor injuries and closed down all lanes of the Interstate for nearly a day. Detours were said to be hours out of the way and delays were terrible.

This seems to be another in a string of recent tragedies on the highways of California. My sympathies go out to those who were injured in the accidents and the families of those lost or hurt.
