Westminster, CA (June 23, 2023) – On Friday, June 23, a multi-vehicle collision occurred on a highway in Westminster, and California Highway Patrol troopers reported injuries.
According to official reports from the CHP and the Westminster Police Department, the collision occurred around 2:45 p.m. The driver of a tan sedan and a white truck heading westbound on State Route 22 near Valley View Street lost control of their vehicles, leading to the wreck and an apparent rollover.
First responders, including firemen, paramedics, and others, were sent to the scene to aid the injured victims in need. However, it’s unclear if any victims were transported to the hospital.
The roadway was blocked almost an hour after the crash, though it opened back up around 4:00 p.m. The inquiry into the accident is still going on in the meantime, and no new information has been made public.
Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their family members now.
Highway driving in California may be thrilling, but it has significant risks. There are hundreds of car accidents in California each year, many of which are dangerous and, tragically, deadly.
In fact, there were 3,854 deaths and 165,978 injuries from 216,366 road incidents in 2022, as reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The number of accidents is down 6.5%, the number of deaths is down 5.2%, and the number of injuries is down 7.3% from the previous year.
