Several injured in multiple multi-car accidents on Highway 14
A two-car collision on Highway 14 left various people injured on Wednesday, May 11th.
Two days later, more injuries and another crash.
Another left more injured six days later on May 17th.
Add another to the list on May 18th.
The most recent accident occurred when two cars were driving the increasingly dangerous stretch of 14 freeway southbound and collided. While one of the cars fell off an embankment, the other vehicle involved rolled into one of the lanes, blocking traffic.
Fortunately, no one was killed, although numerous people were hurt and sent to the hospital for treatment. The California Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the collision. A segment of the highway was temporarily closed in both directions for cleanup as a result, grinding traffic to a halt.
Along the same stretch of highway in Santa Clarita, a similar story played out just one day earlier.
A person was injured when they were struck, causing their vehicle to overturn onto the northbound side of the highway. Los Angeles County Fire Department officials were forced to free one person trapped in one of the vehicles. The cause of this accident is still being determined as well.
The accident that kicked off the volatile week for the 14 was a mirror of the collision that ended it.
A two-car collision caused one car to overturn and come to rest on an embankment on the side of the highway. Similarly, the other involved vehicle ended up blocking traffic, causing CHP to shut down both sides of the heavily-trafficked commuter corridor to and from Los Angeles. Both drivers sustained multiple injuries.
Two days later, another collision turned the 14 into a parking lot, marking four major accidents for the highway in a week.
A rollover collision that affected both sides of Highway 14 on Friday resulted in firefighters having to pull at least one person from car wreckage, according to first responders. https://t.co/hVccgKEz3F— SignalSCV (@SCVSignal) May 13, 2022
