Three lives were taken in an accident that happened last Monday in the Willowbrook area, according to several news agencies in California.
The official accident release issued by the California Highway Patrol has demonstrated that a 2001 Cadillac traveling on the southbound lanes of the Mona Boulevard at a reportedly high rate of speed crashed into an oncoming 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe van that turned left abruptly as a result of the impact. A 7-year-old and a 30-year-old were ejected as a result of the crash between the two vehicles. A 3-year-old passenger was found inside of the van sustaining serious head trauma. The three victims were pronounced dead as soon as the authorities arrived at the accident scene. A 1-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital sustaining moderate injuries along the 24-year-old driver who also sustained moderate injuries.
The 32-year-old Cadillac driver attempted to run away from the scene on foot but was caught by the California Highway Patrol troopers who responded to the scene.
At this moment, investigators are looking into this accident to identify exactly what may have caused it. No further details regarding this occurrence were immediately available but the California Highway Patrol should have more details regarding this occurrence in the near future.
