Winds Topple Big Rigs on SoCal Freeway

Strong winds during a cold winter storm blew several big rigs onto their side alongside a Southern California freeway Wednesday morning.

At least five big rigs toppled on the Foothill (210) Freeway in Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga between 4:30 and 7 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Aerial video showed at least three on their sides near the interchange of the 15 and 210 freeways in Rancho Cucamonga as of noon.

Officials had to drag the trucks off the roadway so drivers could move through. One big rig driver suffered minor injuries, CHP officials said.

The windblown big rigs came hours after snow stranded more than 100 motorists in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles.
