2 Dead In Fiery 9-Vehicle Crash On The 210

UPLAND (CBS) — California Highway Patrol officials tell CBS 2 that at least two people were killed after a collision involving as many as nine vehicles on the Eastbound 210 Freeway Thursday night.

The fiery crash involved at least one big rig.

A Street Team member sent video to KCAL 9 showing a big rig and several other cars fully engulfed in flames.

It is not known if one of the fatalities involved the big rig driver.

CBS 2 was told the cause of the crash is under investigation.

At least two other motorists were reportedly injured.

Meanwhile, another deadly collision was reported earlier on the 710 Freeway in East Los Angeles.

In that accident, involving three cars, a woman was killed just south of the Pomona (60), according to CHP Officer Krystal Carter.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

One person was also trapped in the collision. It is unclear whether the deceased was the person who was trapped.
