It was only a few weeks ago when this blog featured the story of an out-of-control semi-truck careening through California traffic. A man was killed in the July 10 truck crash on Highway 17, when a tractor-trailer loaded with dirt slammed into several cars. The scenario was not unlike a more recent Bay Area collision in which another person died.
The newest tragedy occurred on Highway 152 in Gilroy, where traffic on the busy Silicon-to-Central Valley route was stopped for a red light. Reports indicated a westbound truck driver couldn't stop in time to avoid a collision with several vehicles. The semi-truck then slammed into more cars in the eastbound lanes, damaging a total of eight.
