Truck hits parked bus, snarls traffic

first_imgGLENDORA – Commuter traffic was backed up for three miles Wednesday morning after a freight liner ran into a Foothill Transit bus parked on the shoulder of the Foothill (210) Freeway. The accident happened at 5:18 a.m. on the westbound 210, just west of Bonnie Cove Avenue, and blocked two lanes of the freeway, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Dean Trujillo said. The lanes remained closed for four hours as crews cleaned up a diesel fuel spill. All lanes were reopened at 9:19 a.m., but traffic remained clogged back to the Orange (57) Freeway interchange for some time. The Foothill Transit driver, Diane Martinez, 42, of Fontana, pulled the bus to a complete stop on the right shoulder because of mechanical problems, authorities said. The big rig, driven by Rozzy Quinn, 24, of Augusta, Ga., drifted off the freeway and ran into the bus, Trujillo said.
