Semi Truck Hits Bridge Support on I-5 Near Sylmar, Killing One Person, Injuring Another

SYLMAR, CA (July 18, 2019) – Late Wednesday night, a semi truck struck a bridge support on I-5 close to Sylmar, killing one person and injuring another. The July 17 incident occurred on the southbound side of the freeway, in the Santa Suzana Mountains.

The time was roughly 11:45 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

Reports say the semi truck hit a column that supported a bridge over the freeway. The force of the crash caused the load the truck was carrying to shift and move forward, which trapped the two occupants in the vehicle’s cab.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said firefighters worked to extricate the victims from the wreck. Responders pronounced one person dead at the accident site. The person’s identity, including name, age, gender, and city of residence, has not been reported. It is not known if the person had been the driver or the passenger.

Responders transported the other victim to a hospital in the area. The person’s injuries were described as severe, and the condition critical. The identity of the person, including name, age, gender, and city of residence, has not been reported.

No details are known as to why the crash happened. Investigators are examining the evidence and details to understand the circumstances that contributed to the incident.
