1 Seriously Injured in Sherman Oaks Crash on 405 Freeway Thursday

LOS ANGELES (August 30, 2018) – A major injury collision occurred on the 405 Freeway in Sherman Oaks on Thursday night, according to California Highway Patrol dispatch team.

The accident was reported at about 8:47 p.m., just north of Highway 101.

CHP first logged the incident when three vehicles collided in the northbound lanes of the 405 Freeway. One of the cars involved was described as a silver Honda Accord. The other two black colored vehicles were found facing the wrong way following the crash.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials along with the paramedics responded to the scene and attended to at least one person who was confirmed to have sustained major injuries upon impact.

The patient was then taken to a nearby hospital for further medical aid and evaluation. The name and condition of the victim at this time remained unknown.

Meanwhile, authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to determine the cause of the wreck.

A forensic examination of all the vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the incident. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by both vehicles, such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.

Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this crash, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
