A semitrailer truck driver was killed Monday morning after slamming into a sign in a fiery crash on the 10 Freeway in Fontana.
The 24-year-old driver died at the scene, according to San Bernardino County Fire. Details regarding events that led to the crash were not immediately available.
The collision occurred just after 3 a.m. at Citrus Avenue. Several other vehicles also went off the road near the site of the crash and fire, but no injuries were reported.
"At this point, we are still looking for witnesses and we don't have a reason for him swerving off the road like he did," said CHP Sgt. Josh Buffum.
The fire spread to nearby brush before it was extinguished.
All lanes on the westbound 10 Freeway were shut down at Sierra Avenue at 4 a.m., but the No. 1 and 2 lanes reopened at 5:20 a.m.
The truck was transporting frozen chickens, whic spilled onto the side of the freeway.
