The passenger in Abrego’s 1989 Chevrolet catering truck, Juana Martinez, 41, address unknown, sustained moderate injuries and was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 2010 Isuzu box van, was Loren Montgomery, 52, of Grants Pass, Ore. He was uninjured.
According to a report from CHP Officer John Lutz (Officer Begley, investigator), at about 1:05 p.m., Montgomery was driving eastbound on Highway 126 at 55 mph. As he approached the entrance to Valencia Travel Village, Abrego exited Travel Village and turned onto eastbound Highway 126, directly into Montgomery’s path.
Montgomery braked “but was unable to avoid colliding with the rear” of Abrego’s truck.
Abrego’s truck overturned and she was ejected. She was not wearing a seatbelt.
“Alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be a factor at this time,” the CHP report states.
No arrests were made.
