Last week, there was a fatal big rig crash in Ventura. According to KTLA News Channel Five, the truck crash happened on Wells Road on Friday night. Initial reports indicate that the wreck occurred where Wells Road crosses over Highway 126 in the Saticoy area. Apparently, a southbound 2003 Mitsubishi Montero SUV was approaching Henderson Road from Wells Road, just as a semi truck exited from the eastbound lanes of Highway 126.

Reportedly, as the big rig was turning left onto the northbound lanes of Wells Road, the Montero crashed into the left rear of its trailer. The Montero caught fire, and both occupants in that vehicle died on the scene. At the time of the news report, the California Highway Patrol was still investigating this fatal incident.
