Rancho Cucamonga, CA
The eastbound 210 Freeway at BASELINE Road near Alta Loma looks like a literal war zone tonight due to a horrific ten car accident that has killed two people.
The 210 Freeway has been totally shut down after a fatal, multi-vehicle accident involving a big rig and at least 10 other vehicles.
My brother and his family live right near this location, and this is where drivers usually go way over the speed limit...day in and day out.
The CHP shut down the freeway and says it will likely be blocked into the overnight hours. Motorists are being diverted off the freeway at Mountain Avenue and back on at Campus Avenue in Upland.
Two people died and one person was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. If you have any videos or pics from this crash...please SEND them to my email at RREconomy@aol.com.
