Two victims were taken to Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center while another two were brought to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Santa Clarita. The fifth wounded party was transported to Ventura County Medical Center.
Meanwhile, authorities closed the traffic in both directions of West Telegraph Road. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
We offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their family and friends during such a difficult time.
In this case, there are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in the deadly crash. Was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there negligence or recklessness on the part of any of the motorists involved?
Once the investigation process is over and it proves that a negligent party has caused the incident that led to the death and injuries of other individuals, the family of the deceased and those injured will have the right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the driver who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income, hospital bills, loss of love and companionship and pain and suffering.
