A traffic collision involving two big rigs on Highway 25 at Bolsa Road resulted in a fatality Tuesday morning.
The accident happened at 7:36 a.m., and an unidentified 49-year-old male from San Juan Bautista passed away, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A 49-year-old from San Jose in a 2008 Kenworth was turning left onto Highway 25. A Freightliner driven by the San Juan man was southbound on 25 but couldn’t stop in time, according to CHP.
The front of the Freightliner collided with the middle rear of the Kenworth trailer.
The force of this collision caused the Kenworth to overturn and come to rest blocking both lanes of 25.
The San Juan man was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency personnel. The San Jose man sustained minor injuries and refused medical transport.
Drugs and or alcohol do not appear to be a factors in this collision.
Highway 25 at Shore Road and southbound at Bloomfield remain closed at this time due to the investigation. The road is expected to open between noon and 1 p.m.
