3 Hospitalized in Los Angeles Solo-Vehicle Accident on 5 Freeway near Parker Road
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 7, 2021) – On Saturday afternoon, three people sustained injuries in a rollover crash on 5 Freeway near Parker Road.
According to Supervisor Ed Pickett of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the incident occurred at around 5:00 p.m.
Meanwhile, reports revealed that an SUV struck the center divider of 5 Freeway and overturned.
Thus, responders transported three people to a nearby trauma center via helicopter, Pickett added.
Also, officers closed all northbound lanes of the freeway to give way to helicopters landing on the scene to transport patients.
May this incident be a reminder for all motorists to drive responsibly. Drivers should also keep in mind that distracted driving, speeding, and failing to yield will lead to dangerous road accidents.
How To Proceed From a Crash
While driving is essential for many to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous daily maneuvers. Thus, it is therefore important to know how to proceed in case you find yourself involved in a traffic collision.
On the AAA Foundation Web site, chief executive officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”
Mark Sweet, a personal injury attorney at Sweet Lawyers, says that serious car accident cases may call for a separate investigation spearheaded by an experienced lawyer fighting on behalf of the injured party. A lawyer will make sure victims are not cheated of the proper compensation they are owed.
