2 Semi-Trucks Involved in Deadly Crash on 5 Freeway in Lost Hills
LOST HILLS, CA (July 17, 2019) – One person was killed following a semi-truck crash on 5 Freeway, near Highway 46 early Wednesday morning.
The collision happened just after 12:00 a.m., on southbound 5 Freeway. Dispatchers arrived about a mile north of Highway 46.
CHP officials responded to the scene and located the two semi-trucks blocking multiple lanes of the highway. A third vehicle was also possibly involved, but no further details have been provided at this time.
One of the semi-truck drivers was eventually ejected onto the right shoulder of the freeway, causing life-threatening injuries. A coroner’s personnel pronounced the victim dead at the scene as a result of the impact.
No information was provided about the injuries sustained or the condition of the second semi-truck driver at this time. It is currently unclear whether or not drugs and alcohol were a factor.
Furthermore, the surrounding area was closed off for a brief time while crews worked to clear the wreckage. However, the roadway has since reopened.
The precise circumstances that led to the fatal crash remain unclear at this time. Further investigation is currently underway.
We hope the loved ones of the victim are surrounded by steadfast and comforting support as they grieve for the loss of their loved one during this difficult time.
