Accident closes freeway for over eight hours

California residents must continually be on the lookout for negligent and irresponsible drivers. Whether it is a driver who thinks more about the thrill of driving at excessive speeds instead of the safety of others or the person who refuses to let someone else drive if drinking, these people put innocent Californians at risk every day. On top of this can be the problem of people who do not adequately respond and avoid running into those involved in accidents that have already happened.

A great but very tragic example of all of these things can be seen in an accident that took place in the early morning hours where the 91 and 605 freeways meet. An original crash is believed to have involved only two or possibly three vehicles. Details on this crash are spotty but reports indicate that drunk driving and speeding may well have been factors. Sources suggest that while people may have been injured, no fatalities occured from this first collision.

Two people who were involved in this crash got out of their vehicles and were then apparently struck by other vehicles. It is in these subsequent collisions that two people involved in the first collision were killed. One man died at the scene of the crash while another died at a hospital.

After an accident occurs, people in California might find talking to an attorney helpful as this may open up new ideas on how to seek compensation.
