CABAZON (CNS) – Two people suffered minor injuries Friday in a crash involving a big rig and a box truck on the Interstate 10 Freeway near Cabazon.
The crash was reported shortly before 7 a.m. on the eastbound freeway near the Morongo Trail off-ramp, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.
A big rig overturned and the box truck was on its right side, according to the California Highway Patrol. Fire officials said that two people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
