A Caltrans worker and a probationer picking up trash on the side of the freeway were seriously injured today when a northbound car veered on the shoulder and struck the two. The accident occurred along the I-15 in City Heights.
According to reports, a 1992 Infiniti J30, traveling northbound, swerved to the right, and collided with the slow moving Caltrans van, then hit the man and the woman standing in front of it. Paramedics transported the two to Scripps Mercy Hospital for treatment of what were described as major injuries.
The driver of the Infiniti was also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. She told investigators that she was looking for coins in her center console when the accident occurred.
