Arroyo Grande man killed in big rig crash Thursday in Pasadena

The California Highway Patrol confirms an Arroyo Grande man was killed Thursday in a big rig crash on Interstate 210 in Pasadena.

It happened around 12:00 a.m. on the eastbound side of the highway. The CHP says it was raining at the time.

CHP officers say a 58-year-old man from Arroyo Grande was driving a 2013 Volvo Tractor Truck. For unknown reasons, he left the roadway and hit a concrete over-crossing pillar. CHP officers don't know if he was wearing a seatbelt. Officers say he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck was towing a trailer, and the trailer jack knifed, which blocked all lanes of the eastbound 210 in that area. Five other cars crashed into the trailer.

Two people were hospitalized with minor injuries.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
