Truck Hauling Candy and Car Collide

Two people were injured Tuesday when a truck collided with a passenger vehicle, pinning the car underneath it. The truck crash occurred at about 7:45 a.m. on Interstate 10.
Authorities say the crash was sparked when a Toyota drove into the path of a truck hauling candy. The truck then swerved to the left with the car underneath it, causing both vehicles to slam into the median. First responders found the semi truck on top of the car. Both drivers were extricated from their vehicles and rushed to a local hospital with "minor to moderate" injuries.

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reports that traffic on the I-10 was snarled for over 10 hours. An investigation into the accident is underway.
