BUENA PARK ACCIDENT: Fatal Crash I-5 Freeway, Auto Center Drive (Dec. 31)Fatal 5-Vehicle Crash on Interstate 5 Freeway in Buena Park

BUENA PARK, Calif. (Dec. 31, 2018) — One person died Monday morning in a multi-vehicle crash on the Interstate 5 Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash took place about 4:53 a.m. today on the northbound Santa Ana Freeway at the Auto Center Drive off ramp.

The CHP report stated that a driver in a yellow Isuzu SUV apparently hit a stalled blue sedan before hitting a wall on the northbound 5 freeway. A black BMW also struck a wall and a silver Honda Insight attempting to avoid the collision was struck by a green Toyota 4 Runner, but both vehicles got off the freeway at Auto Center Drive, just north of the 91 Freeway.

One person was trapped in a vehicle and died at the scene. The Orange County coroner’s office was called to the scene at 5:28 a.m., the CHP said.

Police issued a SigAlert at 5:33 a.m. for all northbound lanes and the transition road from the westbound Riverside Freeway to the northbound Santa
Ana Freeway.
