Driver Hauling Trailer Crashes into Center Divider on I-5 Freeway
IRVINE, California (April 1, 2014) – Several drivers including a big rig truck and an SUV or pickup truck hauling a trailer, collided Tuesday morning in a crash on the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway at Culver Drive, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
About 1 p.m., CHP officers responded to the crash involving the driver of a Toyota SUV hauling a trailer that lost control and struck the center divider and several other vehicles, the report said. The vehicles involved in the crash were blocking the Nos. 1, 2, 3 and HOV lanes.
Paramedics responded to the crash for unknown injuries sustained by those involved.
Police issued a SigAlert for the HOV and No. 1 lanes about 1:06 p.m. that was expected to last about 30 minutes.
“People who are hurt in a car accident should seek immediate medical attention and contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help them determine liability for this type of accident,” said Orange County Car Accident Attorney James Johnson. “Hopefully no one was seriously injured in this crash.”
