Old Town, CA (August 20, 2022) – Yesterday, a 16-year-old girl lost her life in a deadly solo-vehicle crash on Interstate 5.
The fatal accident happened at about 5 p.m. south of Rosecrans Street.
According to the authorities investigating the incident, a white Nissan sport utility vehicle, driven by a 53-year-old Kansas woman was northbound on the freeway. Suddenly, the vehicle swerved off the roadway and overturned. Sadly, the impact threw the teen passenger onto the city street below the freeway.
Immediately, the emergency responders arrived at the scene and took the teen to an area hospital where the authorities later declared her dead.
