1 Injured in Los Banos Multi-Car Accident
LOS BANOS, CA (April 24, 2019) – A person suffered injuries after a chain-reaction crash involving three vehicles in Los Banos on April 19.
Sgt. Jesus Parras revealed that a van stopped at a red light on southbound Highway 165 and East B Street at 4:48 p.m. Meanwhile, a pickup truck followed the van. However, a sedan struck the pickup and caused a chain-reaction collision.
As a result, medics transported one person to a local hospital. Moreover, Highway 165’s southbound lane shut down. Authorities administered an alternate route down the center median.
Investigations determined that the cause of the crash is inattention and unsafe speed. However, authorities did not cite anyone as of Friday afternoon.
Parras added that they ruled out drugs and alcohol as a factor in the crash. Meanwhile, the closed lanes reopened at around 5:30 p.m.
