Deadly 4-Vehicle Wreck on 5 Freeway in Buena Park
BUENA PARK, CA (December 31, 2018) – One person was killed following a multi-vehicle collision Monday morning on 5 Freeway in Buena Park.
The fatal collision happened around 4:50 a.m. on the northbound direction of 5 Freeway at Auto Center Drive off-ramp.
According to the California Highway Patrol, a yellow Isuzu SUV hit a stalled blue sedan before hitting the right shoulder wall of the freeway. A black BMW also struck the wall and a silver Honda Insight attempting to avoid the collision was struck by a green Toyota 4 Runner, but both vehicles got off the freeway at Auto Center Drive, just north of the 91 Freeway.
When officers arrived, they located one occupant who was trapped inside a vehicle. That person sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Orange County coroner’s office.
A SigAlert was issued in the area, blocking all northbound lanes of 5 Freeway as well as the transition road from the westbound Riverside Freeway to the northbound Santa Ana Freeway.
Further details, including the identity of the victim, were not immediately available. The incident remains under investigation.
