Big Rigs Banned from Highway after Accident

After a fatal big rig accident, California’s top transportation official has temporarily banned large commercial trucks from Angeles Crest Highway for a period of 90 days.

On Wednesday, a big rig truck transporting automobiles lost its brakes while driving down a steep grade on the Southern California highway. The large truck smashed into several cars – killing a young girl and her father – then crashed into the window of a bookstore, injuring several others.

As a result of the accident, felony charges of vehicular manslaughter were filed against the driver of the truck Marcos Costa of Massachusetts.
