SEAL BEACH, Calif. (July 19, 2018) — A reckless driver allegedly caused a multi-vehicle crash on the southbound Interstate 405 Freeway early Thursday morning in Orange County, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The crash took place at 7:51 a.m. this morning near Seal Beach Boulevard. The driver in a yellow Chevrolet Corvette was reportedly recklessly driving before colliding with other vehicles including a dump truck, a GMC Yukon SUV and a black BMW 320i sedan. One witness told police they saw the Corvette cross all traffic lanes to go from the right to the fast lanes.
The CHP report stated the Corvette caught on fire after the crash. A woman who had been in the Corvette reportedly got out of the vehicle and ran across traffic lanes to the shoulder on the right.
Police issued a SigAlert for the incident due to the vehicles blocking the HOV and No. 1 lanes.
