Injuries Reported in Redding Auto Accident on Interstate 5 and O’Brien Inlet Road
REDDING, CA (May 13, 2021) – Wednesday morning, two people suffered injuries in a rollover crash on Interstate 5 and O’Brien Inlet Road.

At this time, the extent of the driver’s injuries remains undisclosed. Moreover, the crash initially shut down all the southbound lanes but has since reopened.
