Morning 3-Vehicle Wreck on 605 Freeway in Baldwin Park Leaves One Dead
BALDWIN PARK, CA (February 6, 2019) – A person was killed following a multi-vehicle crash Monday morning in Baldwin Park, CHP officials said.
The crash happened around 5:13 a.m. on northbound 605 Freeway, just South of 10 Freeway.
According to California Highway Patrol, at least three vehicles were involved, described as a white Toyota Seqouia, a black Dodge Charger and a silver Hyundai Sonata.
One of the vehicles apparently went over the barrier and crashed head-on into another car on the southbound lanes before rolling over on its side as officers responded to the scene. The third vehicle was on the northbound side and was facing surface streets.
Tragically, one of the parties involved was pronounced dead at the hospital. The identity of the victim has not yet been released pending next of kin notification.
Multiple others were injured, but the exact number of patients was not immediately known.
The violent crash caused a miles-long backup on all lanes just South of 10 Freeway and CHP issued a traffic alert the area.
The northbound lanes were re-opened just before 6:00 a.m., the Sky5 footage shows. The SigAlert for the southbound 605 Freeway was lifted about an hour later.
