First responders have been lucky to escape injury after a large truck crashed and fell from a highway onto the scene of a previous accident.
Dramatic footage shared to social media shows an SUV and a rolled semi-truck blocking the road near the Highway 14 / 5 Freeway interchange in Santa Clarita, California. This first crash occurred at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Friday morning.
As emergency personnel were attending to the scene, a separate truck lost control on the roadway just above the crash at 7:24 a.m. Footage shows this second truck flipping over the guard rail and landing on the sight of the previous crash, eventually coming to a rest on the SUV and the rolled semi-truck.

“At first I was in shock,” Tommy Dorado told ABC7 after filming the crash. “I was in disbelief. I honestly couldn’t believe I was witnessing something like that firsthand.”
Speaking with ABC 7, county firefighters added that no first responders were injured but noted to other individuals were transported for medical treatment after the second crash. Fortunately, no one was inside the semi-truck that had rolled earlier nor the SUV that it came into contact with.
The California Highway Patrol stated that the wet weather likely contributed to the crash and that approximately 40 gallons of fuel were spilled onto the road.
