On or about Thursday, December 3rd, 2020, around 4:00 in the morning, a single-vehicle tractor-trailer accident sent two individuals to the hospital. Highway Patrol said the accident happened along Interstate 8 near Japatul Valley Road in Descanso, California.
Deputies from the area said two as-of-yet unidentified people were injured when the 18-wheeler they were in allegedly toppled in high-wind conditions. Paramedics freed both victims from the truck and rushed them to a nearby hospital with unspecified injuries.
