At least one person was seriously injured in a Los Angeles car accident, which involved a Wal-Mart big rig and several other vehicles. According to a news report in The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the major injury collision occurred on the westbound 210 freeway east of Grand Avenue in Glendora early morning on April 29, 2011. Officials are still investigating what caused this injury collision.
My heart goes out to everyone who was affected by this major car accident. I wish the seriously injured person the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep this injured victim in your thoughts and prayers.

What Caused This Accident?
Based on this news report, there is very little information here about how or why this multi-vehicle collision occurred. There are more questions here than answers. Who was at fault for the collision? Was a drunk driver involved? Did truck driver fatigue cause this incident? Were vehicle defects or malfunctions factors in this injury accident? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine what occurred here and why.
