A pickup truck lost its trailer, which continued into oncoming traffic where it struck an SUV head-on Thursday and sent vehicles swerving across the state Route 9. Just after 8:30 a.m. emergency personnel and officers were dispatched to a four-vehicle crash on state Route 9 just east of Foothills Canyon Drive involving a Ford pickup truck pulling a small utility trailer, a silver Buick SUV, a black Chevrolet Cruze and a silver Chevrolet four-door passenger car, UHP Trooper James Neighbor said. Responders arrived to find the Buick destroyed with the driver outside of the vehicle nearby. The 10-foot trailer was destroyed after it splintered into hundreds of pieces that were thrown across the roadway.
