A California truck accident that occurred last week was responsible for sending two motorists to the hospital with injuries. KTVU News reports the crash happened around 8:30 p.m. Monday along southbound Highway 101, near the Cesar Chavez Street exit.

Troopers with the California Highway Patrol reported a black Toyota Camry was on the highway when it collided with a tractor-trailer. The impact of the California Truck Accident forced the Camry to swerve and hit a silver Honda Accord sedan before rolling onto its roof and screeching to a halt. The overturned vehicle then set off a chain reaction crash involving as many as seven vehicles as traffic began to halt.

In all, two people, including a pregnant woman, were taken to San Francisco hospitals for treatment of injuries they sustained in the accident.

Investigators stated they would continue to look into who is responsible and what contributing factors may have played a part in the accident.

Statistics show California is the number one state in the nation when it comes to motor vehicle fatalities, accounting for more than 40,000 deaths each year and a large portion of such accidents caused by tractor-trailers.
