Multi-Vehicle Crash In Los Angeles County: 1 Dead

Multi Vehicle Crash In LA

On Tuesday, there was a collision in Los Angeles County that involved a semi-truck and a sedan. The accident resulted in the death of one person and the hospitalisation of three others. At approximately 3:39 in the afternoon, police were called to the intersection of South Bonnie Beach Place and Bandini Boulevard in Vernon.

It was confirmed by the Los Angeles County Fire Department that the driver of the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Their true identity has not been made public at this time. Another three persons, including two children and a woman, were taken to a nearby trauma hospital for treatment after they were injured.

Images captured by Sky5 show a vehicle lying mangled in the centre of an intersection after being run over by a big semi-truck. After the incident, it appeared as though the roof and windscreen of the automobile had been entirely shattered. It took some time for the firefighters to free all of the people trapped inside the vehicle after it had been crushed. The reason for the terrible crash is still being investigated at this time.

This is not the First Time

The accident that occurred in Silverado Canyon last week involved multiple vehicles, including a Ferrari, and resulted in the death of one individual. At the scene of the accident, the driver of the Ferrari was pronounced deceased. Their true identity has not been made public at this time. According to the authorities in Orange County, the collision was reported for the first time at approximately 3:41 p.m. at Santiago Canyon Road and Limestone Canyon. According to the authorities, the driver of the Ferrari collided with two other vehicles, and the force of the contact caused the sports car to break in two places.

Images captured by Sky5 depict the severe collision that resulted in three vehicles being left in a twisted wreck with debris strewn across the highway. The other two drivers were sent to a nearby hospital where their conditions were described as life-threatening. According to the investigators, it appears that speed had a role in the fatal collision. During the time that officials were determining what caused the incident, a section of the highways in Santiago Canyon was closed.

Los Angeles County: A Very Dangerous Place

Everyone who uses the roads in Los Angeles, including drivers, pedestrians, and bicycles, runs the risk of being injured or killed at some point. Since 2016, there have been more than 200 individuals murdered annually on the streets of Los Angeles as a result of motor vehicle accidents.

The Vision Zero Program

Vision Zero is a programme that was introduced in Los Angeles in 2015 by Mayor Eric Garcetti. The goal of the initiative is to eliminate all traffic deaths in the city by the year 2025 by making changes to the way streets are designed and by addressing risky driver behaviour. Los Angeles was the third large city in the United States to implement a strategy like this, and it has been called a “pro-pedestrian effort” by various media outlets, including Forbes (along with New York and San Francisco).

The total number of people killed in traffic accidents in Los Angeles saw a significant increase in the year after the implementation of Vision Zero, climbing from 186 in the previous year to 261 in the following year. Since then, the number of people who have been killed in traffic accidents in Los Angeles, including those who were passengers in motor vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists, has fallen marginally.

Traffic Crashes are Increasing

But while pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles appear to have remained stable year-over-year (bearing in mind, as LAist pointed out, that LAPD data updates are delayed by at least a couple weeks), practically every other category of traffic crash has experienced a rise.
