Huntington Beach, CA – Four Injured in Auto Accident on Brookhurst St near Yorktown Ave

Los Angeles, CA – One Killed Following Multi-Car Crash at I-170 & 134 FWY

Los Angeles, CA (November 12, 2022) – On Wednesday evening, November 9, a multi-car accident was reported in Los Angeles that resulted in the tragic death of one person.

According to officials, the accident occurred in the evening, around 10 p.m. The accident occurred when multiple vehicles were traveling in the same vicinity in the roadway connecting the two freeways, Interstate 170 and 134 Freeway, in Los Angeles. Multiple vehicles merged into the same space on the road and collided, and resulted in subsequent collisions involving more vehicles. This is a developing story and the total number of vehicles involved and their description has not been reported at this time.

Paramedics were called to the scene to help those hurt in the accident. Paramedics helped people from their vehicles and rendered aid to all parties. Sadly, one person died as a result of the injuries they sustained in the accident. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Their identity has not been released at this time pending notification of their next of kin. There is no information at this time regarding how many other people were injured in the accident.

The force of the impact caused major damage to the vehicles, blocked the roadway, and caused traffic to be backed up. Traffic was diverted while crews helped people from their cars, tended to injuries, and cleaned up the wreckage.

The authorities are still investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the crash and the events leading up to the collision.

We offer our sincere condolences to the deceased victim’s family.

Our thoughts are also with the other victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Fatal Car Accidents in California

California is reported to have the busiest and most dangerous roadways in the country. California has more than 27 million registered vehicles that flood California’s roads with traffic each day. Californians regularly experience long commutes and traffic jams. Car accidents happen daily in California, and many sadly result in serious injuries or fatalities.

Accidents in California are often very serious, because they often involve multiple vehicles, due to the volume of cars on the roads. California has many complex freeway systems that have multiple lanes of high-speed traffic. Multiple freeways interconnect and merge in the city centers. These interchanges between freeways have even more lanes of traffic and can be even more difficult for cars to navigate. Cars seem to be traveling in every direction, and people often make last-second decisions to change course and get on a different freeway. These areas can be very hazardous and can often result in collisions involving multiple vehicles. When vehicles are involved in a multi-car pile-up, the outcomes are often devastating, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. In addition to the structure of the roadways that make them oftentimes challenging to traverse, other factors increase the likelihood of multi-vehicle collisions, including:

  • Following too closely
  • High speeds
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Blind spots
  • Changing lanes too quickly
  • Stopping suddenly
  • Inclement weather
  • Large commercial trucks fail to merge

Losing a loved one is never easy to experience, and this is especially the case when their passing is unexpected and tragic. If someone you love was killed in an accident caused by someone else’s careless or reckless behaviors, it’s important to hold the at-fault person responsible for their actions. When you lose a loved one, we know that no amount of money could replace that person’s presence in your life. However, filing a wrongful death suit against a negligent party can ensure that you get justice for your deceased family member and can help you to cope with their loss.
