On Tuesday, June 30, 2015, two semi trucks collided on the Highway 99 freeway, in Fresno. The big rig accident occurred near Jensen Avenue, early Tuesday morning.
A tractor-trailer that was carrying onions was pulled over on the shoulder of the southbound highway. A second semi truck was driving south on Highway 99, and crashed into the parked vehicle.
The impact of the two rigs sent onions and other debris over all the lanes of traffic. The southbound highway was closed until the accident could be cleared.
The two drivers sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment.
