During extremely foggy conditions on I-5, a 22-year-old man from Los Molinos was killed at about 3:25am. He was driving his Nissan northbound when he hit a tractor-trailer also in the northbound lanes, which caused both vehicles to cross into the freeway median. The Nissan came to rest on the freeway shoulder and the big rig stopped, blocking the southbound lanes. The California Highway Patrol worked to close one southbound lane in order to clear the scene of the accident. During this time, the southbound SUV hit the tractor-trailer, resulting in minor injuries to the SUV driver. The identities of the big rig and SUV driver were not known immediately.
According to news reports, one lane was closed in order to clean the scene of the collision. As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, my thoughts are with the family of the Los Molinos man. I hope the SUV driver heals as soon as possible. If you or a loved one were hurt in an auto accident due to the negligence of another driver, consult with a car accident lawyer Los Angeles regarding your case.
