A large pickup rammed into the back of a smaller white one on eastbound Highway 20 just east of Toledo Friday afternoon. One person went to the hospital.
Witnesses say a third eastbound vehicle was turning left ahead of the two pickups. As the white pickup came up on the turning SUV, it went around on the right shoulder. Witnesses say after the SUV turned the second pickup came up from behind and hit the just-starting-to-accelerate white pickup. The impact launched a steel tool box in the white pickup up into the air, colliding with the dark pickup. Some debris also hit the rear window of the SUV which was exiting the pavement onto a private driveway.
The white pickup was punched about 150 feet ahead of the point of impact, off the road and into a tree. The older male driver was transported by Pac West Ambulance to PCH in Newport
