The driver of a Dodge Challenger slammed into a big rig Monday morning, shearing off the car's roof.

The crash, which occurred at 1:10 a.m. at the offramp of the southbound 605 Freeway at Washington Boulevard in Whittier, seriously injured the driver of the car, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of the big rig failed to stop at the end of the offramp and made an illegal left turn "directly into the path" of the car, the CHP said. The Challenger became lodged underneath the truck, KTLA reported, its roof sheared off by the force of the impact.

The driver of the big rig tried to drive away from the scene, the CHP said, but according to KTLA his truck stopped working a short time later and he was taken into custody.

Officials said the driver of the Challenger sustained major injuries and was in serious condition.

The only thing truck/trailers are required is to have a "run under bar" at the back of the trailer. That U shaped bar at the back.

 

The only thing under the sides are air deflectors and misc stuff, tire caddy etc.

Both lanes of Kaumualii Highway just west of the Kauai Humane Society  were re-opened around 5:50 p.m. after a three-car crash that occurred Friday afternoon.

Five people were injured, one critically, and were taken to Wilcox Hospital.

According to a preliminary report, a Dodge Challenger was eastbound at approximately 2:43 p.m. near the Humane Society, when it crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a westbound truck. The truck caught on fire and became fully engulfed.

A third vehicle heading west swerved into the eastbound lane to avoid the collision and sideswiped the Challenger.

Kennewick — A 51-year-old was hit by a car Tuesday after he got off a bus and tried to cross Clearwater Avenue.

Troy Allen was taken to the emergency room at Trios Health in Kennewick following the collision, said Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin. He has leg and head injuries.

Allen got off the Ben Franklin Transit bus at 11:15 a.m. and tried to cross north across Clearwater, Lattin said. A 17-year-old girl in a Dodge Challenger pulled out of Sterling’s Restaurant parking lot and hit Allen.

Allen walked directly in front of the Challenger, Lattin said. The teen was not at fault in the crash.

HARRISON TWP. — 

One vehicle left the scene of a crash on Catalpa Drive late Saturday night, leaving behind a snapped pole and another damaged car.

Deputies and medics were sent to the crash near the corner of Catalpa Drive and Golfview Avenue on reports that a white Dodge Charger collided head on with a utility pole.

Deputies found the white Charger with heavy damage and the pole snapped in half. The female driver of the car was looked at by medics at the crash scene, but refused any further treatment, police said.

The woman told police another car had run her off the roadway and then fled from the scene.

Deputies continue to investigate the crash as a hit-and-run.
