A multiple car accident occurred on the 17 freeway near Los Gatos, California yesterday morning. Mercury News reported that the car accident involved 3 vehicles including a Santa Clara County police officer. The car accident took place around 9am on the southbound side of the 17 freeway.
Witnesses reported that the car accident was caused by a teenager who’s car collided with another vehicle. The car that was hit by the teenager who lost control and swerved into another lane on the highway. A police cruiser was involved in the car accident when it t-boned the car that swerved into the officers lane.
The police officer and motorist that he collided with in the car accident were taken to a local hospital by paramedics. Both individuals suffered minor car accident injuries and were released from the hospital after receiving medical treatment.
Multiple car accidents are especially dangerous when they take place at high speeds on the freeway. As a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles I urge motorists to avoid car accidents by obeying the speed limit and to take extra care to check their blind spot before changing lanes.
