6 vehicle accident injures 11 people

In many freeway auto accidents, more than one vehicle is involved due to the number of vehicles on the road at the time, as well as the speed at which everybody is traveling. As a result, injuries can be serious, and in some cases, fatalities are the final result.

On the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, a six vehicle accident on the 405 Freeway in Van Nuys injured 11 people. Along with this, authorities were forced to close all the southbound lanes of the freeway for more than two hours in order to clear the roadway and ensure that all injured parties were taken care of.

According to a spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol, the collision involved four cars, a food truck and a big rig. This type of auto accident is one that can lead to many injuries, due in large part to the sheer number of people involved.

Immediately following the accident, police closed down two northbound lanes to ensure that emergency personnel were able to make it to the scene. Just before noon, all of the southbound lanes were reopened.

As a result of the accident, one person was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Along with this, six others were transported to hospitals for the treatment of mild to moderate injuries. Four others received treatment at the scene and released. At this time, the cause of the accident is under investigation.

When such a large number of vehicles are traveling on a busy freeway, these types of accidents can happen. Compensation may be available for those injured in such accidents. An experienced legal professional can help those who have been injured understand their rights and options.
