PERRIS: 6 Injured in Fiery, 11-Vehicle Crash on 215 Freeway at 4th Street
PERRIS, Riverside County (December 27, 2014) — Six people suffered minor injuries in a fiery crash involving 11 drivers Saturday night on the southbound Interstate 215 Freeway at 4th Street, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
At least three of the vehicles were on fire following multiple collisions in a pileup that backed up traffic starting about 5 p.m. All occupants were able to get out of the vehicles except for one individual who was trapped in a car and required extrication.
One of the vehicles that was on fire was a small Honda that crashed right before the 4th Street bridge, CHP said. Others involved included a black 2013 Nissan Altima that appears to have been impounded following the crash. The driver of a Mitsubishi was also involved.
CAL FIRE/Riverside County Firefighters sent paramedics to assist those who were injured and six people were taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Police are heading up an investigation into this accident to determine liability.
“Hopefully all those injured in this crash have a full recovery,” said Attorney James Johnson.
