Falling Metal Bar From Big Rig Impales Woman’s Leg
A woman riding in an Impala was injured on November 2 when a metal bar fell from a nearby big rig and impaled her leg. The accident happened shortly after 10:00 in the morning along Highway 99 northbound close to Fruitridge Road, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) report. The report stated that the big rig was moving north in the area when the metal bar fell into the road near the Chevy Impala. The bar bounced, which caused it to go through the front of the Impala, where it proceeded to pass through the engine and into the passenger side of the car, impaling the female passenger’s right leg.
