Out-Of-Control Big Rig Slams Into Caltrans Building In Pomona

POMONA (CBS) — An out-of-control big rig slammed into a Caltrans building around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The driver, who apparently fell asleep at the wheel, was exiting the eastbound 60 Freeway at Garey Avenue when he lost control.

The big rig hit a guard rail, crossed through the intersection, and slammed into the Caltrans building.

No one was inside at the time.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was able to crawl out of the truck’s cab. Authorities don’t believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

Hazmat crews cleaned up diesel fuel that spilled, and fire crews were working to free the trailer from the truck.

Firefighters, with the help of engineers, removed the big rig from the Caltrans building.
