At least one person was seriously injured in a three vehicle accident on a major Southern California highway Wednesday afternoon in Anaheim Hills.
According to an accident report from the California Highway Patrol, the three car meet up took place on the Imperial Highway onramp to the westbound lanes of the 91 Freeway at about 1:20 p.m. The crash involved a Jeep SUV and two small sedans, a Hyundai Sonata and an Acura RSX-S.
At this time, the particulars of the accident are not fully known. At least one of the vehicles was overturned, which appears to be the SUV, and one of the drivers in the crash was seriously injured, having to be transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The condition of the rest of those involved is also unknown. There were four inside the Jeep, the Hyundai had only a female driver, and the Acura had a single male driver. It is unclear which vehicle the confirmed injury came from.
Investigators are questioning drivers and witnesses on the scene to piece together the accident and determine what led to the crash, and who was at fault.
The CHP issued a SigAlert at 1:43 as the westbound onramp was closed down for a short time to allow for the cleanup of the wreckage. All lanes were reopened only a short time later.
The Jeep SUV was all but totaled, featuring serious body damage; its entire front grill and left headlamp were left dangling from the vehicle, and the whole left front portion of the vehicle was smashed in.
Freeway onramps can be difficult to traverse, properly controlling your speed can be difficult, and your vehicle can be forced into the outer lanes if your rate of speed is too high. This can put other motorists in a dangerous situation, and collisions can easily result.
If you or someone you know has been in an accident attempting to make a transition onto the freeway, you can seek help. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the liable parties involved.
