5 People Injured in 14 Freeway 2-Vehicle Crash [Newhall, CA]

1 Person Trapped in SUV-Car Collision Near Placerita Canyon Road

Newhall, CA (May 14, 2022) On Friday, 5 people were hospitalized in a 2-vehicle crash on the 14 Freeway.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP), the crash happened at around 11:40 a.m. near Placenta Canyon Road.

The collision impacted both lanes of the freeway.

When driving, better to scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.


Dealing With a Traffic Crash

Moreover, driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, however, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do every day. As often as these accidents happen, many people do not know what follows in the event of a car accident.

Furthermore, according to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.

So, in case of accidents like this one, it is crucial that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision.

Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving and avoid accidents like the 14 Freeway 2-vehicle crash:

  • Always drive at a controllable speed.
  • Never assume you know the other driver’s intention.
  • Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
  • This one, we should never neglect: yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
  • Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phones unstrapped toddlers, etc.
