5 hurt, 1 killed in 4-car crash

Our California readers are well aware of how many cars can clog up local interstates at any time of the day. The more vehicles there are, including cars and trucks, the better chance there is of an accident.

According to police, five people were injured and one was killed in a four car crash that occurred on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach.

Reports note that a driver was traveling north on the highway at approximately 1:30 p.m. when he crashed into another vehicle in his lane. As a result, the driver made his way into the southbound lanes where he collided with additional vehicles.

It was first reported that five cars were involved in the accident, however, this was changed to four later on. The passenger driving in the first car was killed, with the driver being hospitalized for the treatment of serious injuries. Additionally, four other people were taken to a local hospital for the treatment of minor to severe injuries. At this time, the cause of the accident is being investigated by the authorities.

This story goes a long way in showing how an auto accident can turn serious in no time at all. One driver made the mistake of colliding with another, and as a result one person was killed and five others were injured.

When four cars are involved in a crash, there is a great chance of an injury or death. A personal injury attorney is often hired by the victims to advise them on which steps to take as they recover.
