Mission Viejo, CA (November 19, 2022) – On Thursday evening, November 17, a multi-car accident was reported in Mission Viejo that resulted in four people sustaining injuries and caused significant traffic delays.

According to the Police, the accident occurred in the evening, around 5:30 p.m. The accident occurred when multiple vehicles merged into the same space on the road and collided, which resulted in the vehicles incurring major damage.

Paramedics were called to the scene to help those hurt in the accident. Firefighters helped the people from the wreckage and assessed injuries. Four people were injured in the accident. Three people were rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment. There is no information at this time regarding the victims’ conditions.

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.

Car Accidents in California

California has more than 27 million registered vehicles and is one of the country’s most populated and overly congested places to drive. Every day roads are flooded with traffic and are busy with long commutes and traffic jams. Car accidents also happen every day in California and may result in serious injuries.

In addition to the long commutes and backups, California’s roads are often the site of multiple-vehicle collisions. Some drivers are not patient when dealing with congestion and traffic jams and drive erratically, weaving in and out of traffic to get to their destinations. These cars can seem to come out of nowhere and can easily cause a collision. What starts as a collision only involving two vehicles can quickly escalate to a multi-car pile-up. When vehicles are involved in a multi-car pile-up, the outcomes are often devastating, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. Other common factors that increase the likelihood of multi-vehicle collisions include:

  • 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
