On August 24, an apparent runaway dump truck wreaked havoc on Valley Boulevard in San Gabriel, damaging several vehicles and leaving five people injured.
The disastrous dump truck accident started about 12:30 p.m. Along its path of destruction, the dump truck hit a total of eight vehicles before finally stopping at San Gabriel Boulevard.
Investigators believe the driver of the dump truck may have suffered some kind of medical condition that rendered him semiconscious behind the wheel. Five people, including the driver, were injured. The driver and two others were hospitalized.
“At this time, officials are still determining the exact circumstances and cause of this chain-reaction crash,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm.
