MISSION HILLS: Teen Hit by Metal Debris Through Windshield on 5 Freeway

MISSION HILLS, California (December 9, 2016) — A Burbank teenager girl was critically injured Friday morning when a check of metal debris broke her windshield and struck her causing a collision with two other motorists, according to a report by the California Highway Patrol.

The crash took place about 8:45 a.m. this morning on the Golden State Interstate 5 Freeway near San Fernando Mission Boulevard . The 17-year-old was driving a car with two female passengers ages 16 and 17 years old who are also from Burbank. When the metal debris struck her 2008 Honda Accord, one of the passengers attempted to grab the steering wheel, but the car swerved across traffic lanes and struck two trucks pulling car trailers. One of the vehicles was parked on the shoulder of the freeway.

Paramedics with a private ambulance company rushed the injured driver of the Honda Accord to Holy Cross Hospital. She is being treated for major life-threatening injuries, but her two passengers were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Police are heading up an investigation into the cause of the crash and closed down the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 lanes of the 5 Freeway. There was also a clean-up of the metal debris found at the scene and vehicles damaged were towed away. It is unknown at this point where the metal material came from and what caused it to hit the windshield.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
