Rollover on Willow Rd

El Monte:  On Thursday August 30, 2012, Lakeside firefighters were dispatched to reports of a rollover traffic collision on Willow Road.  When units from Lakeside Fire Station 2 arrived on scene they found a full-size truck that had rolled over and during the process took out a fence and several small trees.

The vehicle was found back on its wheels with major damage.  A complicating issue with this accident was the fact that there were several fence boards that punctured the windshield and were into the occupancy space in the truck.  The driver of the vehicle was struck by the boards and sustained injuries from them.

The driver of the vehicle was transported to an area trauma hospital.  The cause of the accident is under investigation by the CHP.
