CAJON PASS, California (May 30, 2018) — A collision involving more than 20 motorists on the southbound Interstate 15 Freeway in the Cajon Pass Wednesday morning left 17 people with injuries, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The collision took place about 10:40 a.m. this morning, just north of Highway 138. Two people suffered moderate injuries and 15 others had minor injuries following the crash, the San Bernardino County Fire Department said. The report did not say how many people were taken to hospitals.
The roadway was jammed with vehicles after the collision in heavy fog this morning. One of those involved was a shuttle van that was on the right shoulder with damage. a red car was overturned in the center divider. Visibility was less than 30 feet for this area today. Police issued a SigAlert for the crash as all southbound lanes have been shut down at Ranchero Road and the investigation is ongoing.
California Accident Investigation
Police are investigating this collision to determine the cause and liability. At this time, it appears that multiple drivers may be held responsible. This will be a difficult accident to investigate due to so many vehicles being involved. Police will eventually issue a report with their findings of liability.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were hurt.
If a negligent driver or another entity is at fault for a collision resulting in injuries to you or a loved one, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Oftentimes, an injured person is at a disadvantage when they try to negotiate directly with an insurance adjuster. Particularly in a case where multiple drivers are likely responsible. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney who will fight for you and ensure your legal rights are protected.
While this is always a personal decision, for many the financial losses associated with a traffic accident are significant.
