Driver Sought After Video Captures Violent Crash That Left BMW Stuck Under Semi on 10 FWY
California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers are on the lookout for the driver of an Infiniti that was caught on video causing a dramatic car collision that resulted in a BMW being pinned under a big rig on the 10 Freeway in the Inland Empire earlier this week.
According to a Facebook post from BMW passenger Alan Parcero, the crash occurred at about 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, blocking westbound traffic between Riverside and Pepper Avenue exits. BMW driver, Madis Tolentino told authorities that she had been driving home to Ontario when she encountered the Infiniti and another vehicle racing down the freeway.
Dashcam footage confirms Tolentino’s report, as the video captured the moment when Tolentino’s BMW was side-swiped by the Infiniti. This incident caused the BMW to hit another sedan and veer into a big rig nearby. Tolentino’s car ended up getting trapped beneath the big rig’s trailer. At the same time, the Infiniti driver fled the scene. An eyewitness account confirmed this by Jose Rios who was driving on the freeway at the time of the incident. Rios stopped to call 911 after the crash and went to assist the driver of the BMW.
Tolentino suffered minor injuries and said she is experiencing anxiety since the accident. CHP later confirmed on Friday that they discovered the Infiniti not long after the crash, although the driver was nowhere to be found.
