Collisions involving two vehicles may result in severe injuries and death. The risks of fatalities may increase if one of the vehicles involved is heavier and bigger than the other one.
At least three women have died after the Nissan pickup truck they were riding in was struck by a Wal-Mart tractor trailer, causing it to catch fire. The accident occurred along the southbound Orange (57) Freeway.
According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers, the three women were still inside the pickup when it burst into flames.
Both the pickup and big rig drivers did not sustain fatal injuries due to the crash.
